President Muhammadu Buhari has approved the appointment of Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP) Aliyu Abubakar Musa, as his Chief Personal Security Officer (CPSO).
This was disclosed in a terse statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Mallam Garba Shehu.
According to the statement, DCP Musa, from Nigerian Police Force Zone 5, Benin City, as his last station, hails from Niger State.
Musa’s appointment follows the redeployment of his predecessor, Commissioner of Police (CP) Abdulkarim Dauda.
Dauda, who is said to be Buhari’s nephew, had his service extended by three years by presidential approval last year.
Initially due to retire from service on January 1, 2020, Dauda will now leave the force on May 13, 2023.
