By Kingsley Omonobi
Following new attacks allegedly perpetrated by Fulani herdsmen in the Riyom area of Jos, at about 1. 30amÂ Wednesday in which 11 persons were said to have been killed, the Police High Command has deployed an Assistant Inspector General of Police to oversee security operations in the state with immediate effect. He is AIG Donald Onyinye Iroham.
The deployment of AIG Iroham to Jos , is coming on the heels of more deployments of Mobile Police Squadrons from the Force headquarters and neighbouring states to Plateau state following heightened fear and unease pervading the entire state.
Vanguard gathered that the choice of AIG Iroham for the job followed his wide experience garnered during his sojourn as Police Commissioner that saw him posted to such states as Kano, Ondo, Anambra, Kwara and Imo states during which he performed creditably.
