Police withdraw officers attached to Aisha Buhari, Boss Mustapha, others
The Nigerian Police Force (NPF) has withdrawn the Police Mobile Force (PMF) personnel attached to Mrs Aisha Buhari, wife of former President Muhammadu Buhari, his brother, Mallam Mamman Daura, and other prominent individuals.
Other personalities affected by the withdrawal include Boss Mustapha, the former Secretary to the Government of the Federation, and Iyorchia Ayu, a former Senate President.
The order for this withdrawal was contained in a Police Wireless Message on Monday.
“The decision aims to optimize the deployment of police personnel and ensure the effective use of resources in line with prevailing security challenges in the country.”
Police said this move comes as part of an ongoing reassessment and reorganization of security details by the Nigerian Police Force.
The police did not state that the withdrawal of PMF personnel from these high-profile individuals is indicative of any specific threat or security breach.
But it noted that it aligns with the broader goal of streamlining security arrangements to meet the evolving security needs of the country.
