The acting Inspector General of Police (Ag. IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has appointed an Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), Frank Mba, as new spokesman for the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).
A statement on Wednesday from Deputy Force Public Relation Officer, CSP Aremu Adeniran, said he takes over from Moshood Jimoh, an acting Deputy Commissioner of Police who is being redeployed to other national assignment.
Adeniran said until his appointment, Frank was working at the Special Fraud Unit (SFU), Ikoyi, Lagos. The posting is with immediate effect.
Frank Mba, an Assistant Commissioner of Police and a Lawyer, is an alumnus of the University of Lagos where he studied Law.
He also has a Masters Degree in Law from the University of Dundee, Scotland- United Kingdom.
A product of the Nigeria Police Academy, Kano where he had his initial police trainings, Frank is a graduate of the prestigious FBI National Academy, Quantico, USA.
He also holds a Certificate in National and International Security from the Harvard University, USA.
A former Police Spokesman, both at the national and the Lagos State Command levels, Frank is an experienced communicator and image maker.
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.
He is also charged to improve the relationship between the citizens and the police.
Adeniran said Mba is assigned to bridge existing communication gap between the police and its stakeholders, and assisting the IGP in realizing his mission and vision for the Force and the nation.
