A PUNCH newspaper-monitored article says Adamu came to the office shortly earlier today to pass the authority to Sanusi Lemu for the main time as the new police chief.



“The report cited a source saying, “The IG did not officially hand over power to DIG Lemu; it merely asked him to take over as the most senior DIG pending Presidential Villa directives. Adamu is also nursing the expectation that he will prolong his stay.
