The Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba, has appointed Mr. Tunji Disu, a Deputy Commissioner of Police, as a new head of Police Intelligence Response Team (IRT), a position occupied by Abba Kyari, who the police authorities suspended, following his indictment by the U.S. for an alleged role in the $1.1million fraud.

In a media statement released on Monday, the police spokesman, Frank Mba, said the IG charged the new head of the IRT to demonstrate his professional competence in his leadership of the unit.

“He also assured citizens that the IRT will remain focused in the discharge of its duties in line with national statutes and international best practices.

Prior to his appointment, Disu, a former Commander of the Rapid Response Squad Lagos State, was the DCP, Department of Operations, Force Headquarters, Abuja.

He had also previously served at the State Criminal Investigation Department, Rivers State as the Deputy Head of the unit.

He was also a former Commander of the Nigeria Police Contingent to the African Union Peace Keeping Mission in Dafur, Sudan.

The new IRT head holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the Lagos State University and a Masters Degree in Public Administration from the Adekunle Ajasin University, Ondo State.

He has also attended several professional courses both at home and abroad, including Small Arms Smuggling Training in Botswana, Internet Fraud Training at the Cambridge University, United Kingdom; Strategic Leadership Command Course at the Police Staff College, Jos; Forensic Investigations and Criminal Intelligence Course at the University of Lagos, amongst others.

He is a member of the International Association of Chiefs of Police, Nigeria Institute of Public Relations and Chattered Institute of Personnel management, amongst other professional bodies.
