Nigeria’s Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the Ondo State Police Commissioner, Bolaji Salami, to restore the security details of the state’s deputy governor, Agboola Ajayi, with immediate effect.
The directive came through a letter issued to the Police Commissioner and obtained by SaharaReporters on Monday morning, with Ref. No CB:2002/DOPS/FHQ/ABJ/VOL/77/168; signed on behalf of the IGP through Austine Agbonlahor, an Assistant Inspector-General of Police.
Ajayi had last week Wednesday raised the alarm that security details attached to him and his office were withdrawn by the Police Command in the state.
He specifically accused the Commissioner of Police of working on the instructions of Governor Rotimi Akeredolu to withdraw the officers.
