“DCP Musa, from Nigerian Police Force Zone 5, Benin City, as his last station, hails from Niger State.

“Musa’s appointment follows the redeployment of his predecessor, Commissioner of Police (CP) Abdulkarim Dauda”, the statement said.

Meanwhile, this coming after the President had planned to sack some of his top security details and some top aides for the roles they all played in the clash between his wife, Aisha Buhari and his Personal Assistant and Nephew, Sabiu ‘Tunde’ Yusuf.

NewsOne Nigeria recalls that those set to get the axe are Buhari’s Chief Security Officer, Kassim Idrissa, his ADC, Col. Mohammed Lawal Abubakar, his Chief Personal Security Officer, Abdulkareem Dauda, who was relieved of his duties and replaced with DCP Musa, whom Yusuf, a son to Buhari’s niece, claimed to be threats to his life.

It was learned that Mamman Daura, one of his closest confidants, had persuaded Buhari in taking actions. He reportedly told President Buhari that some of his security aides were not only after Sabiu Yusuf’s life but his own as well.

After listening to Daura’s complaints, the President ordered that all aides involved in the clash and alleged threat to the lives of the two men to be removed.
