Police Spokesperson, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi Promoted to Assistant Commissioner of Police

Nigeria Police Spokesperson, Chief Superintendent of Police, Muyiwa Adejobi has been promoted to the rank of Assistant Commissioner of Police.

ENigeria Newspaper understands that the elevation of Muyiwa Adejobi who succeeded DIG Frank Mba as Spokesperson of the Force was announced on Thursday afternoon.

Adejobi is known for his outspokenness and brilliance as well as his critical and analytical position on key issues in the society even when Police officers are involved.


Born to the royal family of Afelele Ruling House in Ayedade Local Government Area of Osun State, Olumuyiwa Adejobi was reportedly recommended to succeed his late monarch father, Moses Adejobi who died along with his wife in an auto crash on March 15, 2011.

The brilliant Police Officer who was the Spokesperson of Ogun State Police Command, Lagos State Police Command before eventually taking up his new assignment, comes from a family of more than ten Police Officers and is also married to a Police Officer himself. In an interview with a Nigerian newspaper he said, “My father’s nuclear family has four in the force and we have ten from the extended family,” he said.
“My wife is a police officer, but junior to me. I do not expect her to be saying ‘morn sir’. When she wants to greet me in the morning, we still maintain our culture and tradition.

“But when it comes to official duties when in uniform, she must give me my compliments, even if she is going to hug me later. If I’m to visit my wife at her formation, she would call people to attention for me that I have arrived. After the official recognition, I can go ahead and hug her. My elder brother is a Superintendent of Police. When he comes around, I call people to attention, even though my brother will still call me kabiyesi. We relate well. When it is a family affair, we relate normally.”


Congratulatory messages have since been pouring in since the information became public.
