Why I Sacked IGP, Suleiman Abba – Pres. GEJ

Gross indiscipline amongst the personnel of the Nigeria Police Force amid the tenure of Suleiman Abba, was the motivation behind why President Goodluck Jonathan dumped him as Inspector General.
This was unveiled to columnists via director of the Police Service Commission, Mike Okiro, taking after a Police Council meeting, led by Jonathan.
“The President, in a very brief way said, during the period of the former IGP, a lot of indiscipline was noticed among the rank and file of the police and as such he felt that a new IG should come and try his luck,” Mr. Okiro said. “That is what (Mr. Jonathan) said, though I cannot give details of that.”

Also at the council, Mr. Jonathan confirmed the appointment of the new Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase.
Arase was appointed by the president as the Acting IGP following the sack of Abba late last month. He has been in an acting capacity for three weeks.
