Mohammed Adamu, the inspector-general of police (IGP), has redeployed the police commissioners in Edo and Ondo months to the governorship elections in the two states.

While Edo election would hold in September, that of Ondo has been scheduled for the following month.

In a statement on Thursday, Frank Mba, police spokesman, said the duo were redeployed alongside  nine other commissioners across the country.

Undie Adie, who was in charge of Ondo command, was posted to Osun and replaced by Bolaji Amidu.

Lawal Jimeta formerly of Edo command is now the commissioner in Bauchi, while Johnson Kokumo has taken over from him.

Also redeployed were Philip Maku who is now in charge of Ebonyi command and Ahmed Shehu who has been moved to Gombe.

Joe Enwonwu was also redeployed to Oyo command while Evelyn Peterside is to head the Eastern Port.

Okon Ene and Bello Maikwashi are now in charge of explosive ordinance disposal (EOD) and airport command respectively while Olukolu Shina is head of the anti-fraud unit.

Mba said the IGP charged the posted officers to ensure they consolidate and advance the gains of their predecessors “particularly in the implementation of community-policing, crime prevention, public security, public safety and general crime fighting”.
