There is tension and anxiety going on in the Nigeria Police Force over what could happen in the next 24 hours in the Force as the service term for the Inspector General of Police, IGP Ibrahim Idris, ends tomorrow, January 3.

Idris, the nation’s 19th Inspector General of Police, was appointed by President

The 59- year old Niger State-born police chief is due for retirement from the Force tomorrow, January 3, having enlisted into the Nigerian Police Force in 1984, after graduating from the Ahmadu Bello University Zaria with a bachelor’s degree in Agriculture.

There are speculations that, as his attainment of the mandatory retirement age of 60 years of service in the police comes to an end on January 3, President Muhammadu Buhari may extend it for some period of time, given that the country is facing national elections in few weeks to come.
