Osun Gubernatorial Election: IGP Orders Temporary Transfer Of Commissioner Following Outcry

Osun Gubernatorial Election: The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali, has ordered the temporary transfer of the Osun State Commissioner of Police, Adewale Olokode to the Force Headquarters pending the conclusion of the guber election when he would return to the State

The IGP’s order is coming just a few weeks after several groups in the state called for the commissioner’s replacement over alleged incompetence.

The police said the deployment was necessary to ensure transparency and professionalism in all its engagements and operations in the Osun Gubernatorial Election.
