The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has ordered the immediate removal of the Commissioner of Police in Kogi State, Mr Ali Janga, following a jailbreak in the state.

Mr Idris gave the directive in a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood in Abuja, the nation’s capital.

The directive comes hours after Mr Janga announced that six suspects, including two men who accused Senator Dino Melaye of supplying their arms, escaped from police custody in Lokoja, the state capital.

However, the lawmaker has since denied the allegations and described them as attempts to silence him.

In further reaction to the jailbreak, the police boss ordered the redeployment of the Commander, Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS) in Kogi for negligence, dereliction of duty and gross misconduct.

He also redeployed the Divisional Police Officer ‘A’ Division, Lokoja, where the suspects escaped, and other police officers implicated in the escape for the same offence.
