The Public Relations Officer, Mr. Ekpedeme King, confirmed the appointment on Monday.

King said the Mr Paradang would be decorated on Tuesday (today) by the Minister of Interior, Abba Moro.

The new CGI, who hails from Plateau state, until his appointment, was in charge of state coordination at Immigration headquarters, Abuja.
