The Nigerian Police Force (NPF) has taken the step of withdrawing Police Mobile Force (PMF) personnel who were previously assigned to several prominent individuals, including Aisha Buhari, the wife of former President Muhammadu Buhari, and his brother, Mamman Daura.
Other personalities affected by this decision 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 communicated through a Police Wireless Message on Monday.
The Nigerian Police Force has stated that this action is part of an ongoing reassessment and reorganization of security details. The objective is to optimize the deployment of police personnel and ensure the effective utilization of resources in light of the prevailing security challenges across the country.
Importantly, the withdrawal of PMF personnel from these high-profile individuals should not be construed as a response to any specific threat or security breach. Rather, it reflects the broader aim of streamlining security arrangements to meet the evolving security needs of the nation.
Although these individuals will no longer have PMF personnel exclusively assigned to their protection, it is crucial to note that they will still benefit from other security arrangements provided by relevant agencies.
The decision aligns with the overall goal of enhancing security measures and utilizing resources efficiently.
As the Nigerian Police Force continues to adapt to the ever-changing security landscape, reassessments and adjustments in security arrangements are vital to address emerging threats and ensure the safety of individuals across the country.
