Following the death of late ASP Mathew Gbanya by an unknown assailant at Station Road in Makeni, the former North East Regional coordinator for the Operations Support Division (OSD), the Inspector General of Police, William Fayia Sellu has on Monday 17th April, 2023 made administrative changes in the command structure.

The IG replaced the late ASP Banya with Superintendent Bankole Mansaray of the Operations Support Division (OSD) being transferred to Makeni as the new Regional Coordinator of the division for the Northwest Region.

This transfer and shake in the police was reflected to many other police officers as well and this is the routine exercise to stabilize the police structure carried out by the inspector general of police as and when needed according to the police source.
