According to TheNation, Adamu has completed his 35-year service in the force on Monday February 1, was expected to have handed over to the most senior officer at the close of work on Monday, but he did not, fuelling speculations that he might be granted an extension of service.

However, he was at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Airport to receive President Buhari who returned to Abuja after a four-day trip to his hometown Daura on Tuesday February 2, was reportedly told of his fate after the President’s arrival.

A top source told the publication;
The IGP has been asked by the President to handover. Adamu was waiting for the presidential directive. He would have left on Monday but it will be discourteous to have exited without a clear-cut directive from the President and Commander-In-Chief.

He may likely handover to the most senior deputy inspector-general of Police. I am aware Adamu was yesterday putting finishing touches to his handover note.
There are also speculation that AIG Zanna Ibrahimmay be appointed as IGP, which has reportedly led to jubilation at Nigerian Police Academy, Wudil, Kano State.

A lecturer at the academy said;
He is an egghead, we have been jubilating since we heard of the likely choice. We have not seen him but his personal assistant came to his office this evening to clear a few things from his desk.
