Johnson Kokumo, the Commissioner of
Police, Armament, who is now in charge of Edo State Command and David

Others are acting CP Garba Umar
who was redeployed from Bayelsa State Command to Anambra State Command
and Lawan Ado, Commissioner of Police, General Investigation, Force

communicated to the Inspector-General of Police for implementation in a
letter signed by Musa Istifanus, Permanent Secretary/Secretary to the

said. The police said that the officers would be held responsible for
any proven act of omission or commission in their states.
