Enugu gets new commissioner of police


The Inspector-General of Police Mohammed Adamu Tuesday ordered the immediate posting of Ahmad Abdulrahman as Enugu State’s Commissioner of Police.

“He takes over from CP Suleiman Balarabe, who has been redeployed to the Force Intelligence Bureau, FCID, Abuja, as the CP in-charge of Intelligence,” Police spokesman Frank Mba said in a statement on Tuesday.

“His posting as the CP Enugu State is predicated upon his action-oriented approach to work, his track record of outstanding leadership and interpersonal relations.”

Mba stated the new commissioner has been charged to bring to bear his wealth of experience, leveraging on the Force policy on Community Policing and Intelligence-driven crime-fighting strategies towards overhauling the security architecture of the coal-rich State.


He said the IGP has enjoined the people of the State to partner with the Police and accord the Abdulrahman maximum cooperation in his efforts at revamping the security situation in the State.

Mba noted that Abdulrahman has held many command positions across the Federation: Kaduna, Bayelsa and Ekiti Commands which has prepared in him for the task ahead.

Abdulrahman a graduate of Political Science & Administration from the University of Sokoto, also holds double Masters Degrees – one in Criminal Justice and another in Conflict, Peace & Strategic Studies, both from the Kaduna State University.

The commissioner also holds a Post Graduate Certificate in Corruption Studies from the University of Hong Kong. Ahmad was the Commissioner of Police in charge of Intelligence at the FCID, Abuja.
