The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on Wednesday reinstated the Plateau State Police Commissioner, Undie Adie.
Adie was redeployed to the Force Headquarters, Abuja on Tuesday and replaced by Bala Ciroma three days after 200 persons were reported killed in some parts of the state.
But the Public Relations Officer (PRO), Terna Tyopev, said in a Wednesday statement that Adie had been reinstated.
The statement read, “The inspector-general of police Ibrahim Idris has reversed the earlier deployment of CP Udie Adie t force headquarters, Abuja back to Plateau state command Jos.”
“Commissioner of police CP Bala Ciroma has since handed over and returned the the force headquarters Abuja.
“Moreover, it is the reasoning of the Inspector general of police Ibrahim Idris that CP Undie Adie understands the terrain better, as such he is to remain and steer the ship off the tides.
“The Nigeria police Plateau state command Jos, wishes to inform member of the public that posting and deployment of police personnel is at the discretion of the inspector-general of police and it is normal routine in the force.”
