Force Criminal Investigation Division

The Force Criminal Investigation Division was formerly known as the Federal Investigation and Intelligence Bureau (FIIB) and performs many of the same functions. The main difference is the Economic and FInancial Crimes Commission, which is semi-autonomous of the force.

In mid-1989 a National Police Force reorganization was announced after the AFRC's acceptance of a report by Rear Admiral Murtala Nyako. Under the new structure, a Federal Investigation and Intelligence Bureau (FIIB) was to be set up as the successor to the Directorate of Intelligence and Investigation; three directorates were established for operations, administration, and logistics, each headed by a deputy inspector general. The Directorate of Operations was subdivided into four units under a deputy director--operations, training, communications, and the police mobile force. The Directorate of Administration was composed of an administration unit headed by an assistant inspector general (AIG), and of budget and personnel units under commissioners. The Directorate of Logistics had four units--procurement, workshop/transport, supply, and work/maintenance--under AIGs. The zonal arrangements were retained. However, AIGs were authorized to transfer officers up to the rank of chief superintendent, to set up provost units, to deploy mobile units, and to promote officers between the ranks of sergeant and inspector.
