Why We Withdrew Tambuwal’sSecurity Details – Nigeria Police

Following his defection from the Peoples
Democratic Party, PDP, on whose platform
he was elected Speaker of the House of
Representatives, to the All Progressives
Congress, APC, the Acting Inspector-General
of Police, Suleiman Abba, has redeployed
security details comprising policemen
attached to Rt. Hon. Aminu Tambuwal.
There were speculations on Thursday that
policemen and Department of State Security
Services (SSS) operatives attached to the
speaker, who is the number four citizen, for
his personal security, had been withdrawn. It
was not clear who ordered the withdrawal as
none of them reported to their duty posts at
the speaker’s residence this morning.
But the picture became clearer as the Force
Public Relations Officer, DCP Emmanuel
Ojukwu, in a statement on Thursday in Abuja,
hinged the withdrawal of Tambuwal’s police
details on Section 68(1)(g) of the 1999
Constitution of the Federal Republic of
Nigeria as amended.
The statement reads, “In view of the recent
defection by the Right Hon. Aminu Waziri
Tanbuwal, CFR, the Speaker of the House of
Representatives of the Federal Republic of
Nigeria, from the People Democratic Party to
the All Progressive Congress and having
regard to the clear provision of section 68(1)
(g) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal
Republic of Nigeria as amended, the Nigeria
Police Force, has redeployed its personnel
attached to his office”.
Tambuwal is yet to react to the withdrawal
of his security details at the time of
publishing this report.
