The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, has deployed CP Oyediran Adesoye Oyeyemi to the Ondo State Command as the new Commissioner of Police in the state.
The posting followed the retirement of CP Bolaji Amidu Salami, the erstwhile Commissioner of Police in the state, having completed the statutory years of service in the Nigeria Police Force.
Force Public Relations Officer, CP Frank Mba, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday.
He said, “The new Commissioner of Police, CP Oyediran, who was until this deployment, the Commissioner of Police in charge of the Railway Police Command, was appointed into the Nigeria Police Force in 1990.
“He holds a BSc (Hons) in Psychology from the University of Ibadan. He has attended several tactical and leadership courses within and outside Nigeria including Strategic Leadership and Command Course (SLCC), Police Staff College, Jos; Strategic Action on Kidnapping and Hostage Taking (UN Senegal), amongst others.
“He has also served in various operational, investigative, and administrative capacities in Edo, Ogun, Oyo, Ebonyi, and Akwa-Ibom State commands.”
He said the IGP charged the new CP to bring his vast administrative, operational and intelligence gathering experience to bear, in consolidating and improving on the achievements of his predecessor, towards ensuring increased public safety and security of lives and property in Ondo State.
The IGP further called on the government and good people of Ondo State to give the new Police chief maximum support and collaboration in his new role.
