The Presidency has announced the appointment of a Chief Personal Security Officer for the President in the aftermath of the shooting row at the Villa.
He is Deputy Commissioner of Police, Aliyu Musa who until his appointment was from Nigerian Police Force Zone 5, Benin City, as his last station and hails from Niger State.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, who disclosed this in a statement on Monday, said “Musa’s appointment follows the redeployment of his predecessor, Commissioner of Police, Abdulkarim Dauda,”
Dauda is one of the security operatives redeployed from the Villa in the wake of the shooting drama that involved security aides attached to the President’s wife, Aisha.
