The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, on Monday approved the promotion of 82,779 junior police officers.‎

Out of the 82,779 police officers, 56,779 Sergeants were promoted to Inspector; 17,569 Corporals were promoted to Sergeants and 8,431 Constables were promoted to Corporal.

A statement by Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba, said the promotions was part of the efforts at boosting the morale of personnel and repositioning the police for greater efficiency.

‎Eighty-six junior officers who were negatively impacted by the #EndSARS riots were also promoted, while 16 police officers who were killed during the protests got special posthumous promotion.

Seventy others who were injured during the violence arising from the protests were equally elevated.

Parts of the statement read, “The IGP while congratulating the officers, charged them to see their promotion as a mark of additional responsibility and a call to rededicate themselves to their professional calling.

“He enjoined them to continue to carry out their duties diligently and in conformity with best practices and respect for the rights of the citizen.

“He noted that the promotion albeit, posthumously, of the officers who were killed by some ENDSARS protesters is a symbolic gesture in recognition of the ultimate price they paid in the service of the nation.”
