In an interview with Premium Times on Friday, December 29, Bala Elkana, the police spokesperson in the state, confirmed the transfer.

“It is not really a transfer; he is going for a course at the National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies in Kuru, he is going on training for a higher officer,” said Elkana, a deputy superintendent of police.

Bala said he is presently unaware who is to replace Muazu Halilu.

Don Awunah, Halilu’s predecessor, was similarly transferred from the state in less than seven months after taking over office.

As is the tradition, police commissioners do not have fixed places of assignment and tenures. Their postings are often at the inspector-general’s will.

Meanwhile, NAIJ.com reported that the Nigeria police force has said that all officers of Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) would undergo psychometric test, training and continuous assessment of operatives deployed to SARS to determine their suitability.

NAIJ.com gathered through series of tweets on the NPF twitter page that the police force also ordered the prohibition of SARS operatives to act as body-guards, delving into land matters, personal disputes, debt collection and civil matters.
