Assistant Inspector General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, may be formally announced on Tuesday as the replacement for Ibrahim Idris as the new Inspector General of Police.

This follows the exit of Idris who retires on Tuesday as he clocks 60 years of age.

Idris, it was learnt, is expected to retire from service on attainment of the mandatory 35 years in service or 60 years of age.

Adamu Mohammed is said to have been shortlisted to take over from Idris.

Idris was at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, on Monday, in what appears to be a goodbye visit to President Muhammadu Buhari.

It would be recalled that Idris was appointed by Buhari on June 21, 2016.

He replaced Solomon Arase.

Idris enlisted into the Nigerian Police Force in 1984.

He graduated from Ahmadu Bello University Zaria with a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture.
