IGP appoints Frank Mba as new police PRO
The Acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Abubakar Adamu, has appointed Frank Mba, an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), as the new spokesperson for the Nigeria Police Force.
Mba takes over from Jimoh Moshood, an Acting Deputy Commissioner of Police.
The Force, in a statement yesterday, said the new police PRO, until his appointment, was working at the Special Fraud Unit (SFU), Ikoyi, Lagos. The posting is with immediate effect.
“The new Inspector-General of Police has therefore charged him to bring his wealth of experience to bear in revamping the image of the Force, improving the relationship between the citizens and the police, bridging existing communication gap between the police and its stakeholders, and assisting the IGP in realising his mission and vision for the Force and the nation,” the statement said.
Mba hails from Ezimo in Udenu Local Council of Enugu State and was the best graduating Cadet Inspector in academics at the Police Academy, Kano, in 1993.
He studied law at the University of Lagos and was called to the Nigerian bar in 2002. He also has a Masters Degree in Law from the University of Dundee, Scotland, United Kingdom (UK).
The new police spokesman is a graduate of the prestigious FBI National Academy, Quantico, United States (U.S.) and holds a Certificate in National and International Security from the Harvard University, U.S.
He was spokesman both at the national and the Lagos State Command levels.
Mba, who had since assumed duty as the Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO), Force Headquarters, Abuja, served as the Force PRO under the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar, from 2012 to 2014.
He was relieved of his post after Abubakar’s departure.
He was promoted to Assistant Superintendent of Police in 1999, Deputy Superintendent of Police in 2003, Superintendent of Police in 2006 and Chief Superintendent of Police in 2012.
