President Goodluck Jonathan has relieved the Inspector General of Police, Suleiman Abba, of his appointment.
The sack which was announced on Tuesday by Presidential Media Adviser, Dr. Reuben Abati, is with immediate effect.
Abati, who announced this via his Twitter handle did not however give reason for the sudden sack, barely a month to the end of the Jonathan administration.
According to the tweet, Abba has been directed to handover to the Deputy Inspector-General of Police Solomon Arase, in Acting capacity.
“President Jonathan sacks IGP Suleiman Abba, appoints DIG Solomon Arase as Acting IGP with immediate effect,” Abati tweeted.
Until his appointment as Mr. Abba’s replacement, Mr. Arase was the Head of the Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department.
Mr. Arase holds Bachelors and Masters Degrees in political science and law.
"They called Goodluck Jonathan, who gave you YouWIN and SURE-P, and PRESSID Scholarships clueless. So what do we call APC that gives you wheelbarrow? They said GEJ was tribalistic yet his NSA, CDS, IGP, CNS, CGP and minister of defense were from the North. So what do we say of President Muhammadu Buhari whose DG DSS is from his own hometown and whose Minister of Defense, Chief of Army Staff, Chief of Air Staff, NSA, IGP, CGP, CGI, CGP are all from his Northern Region? You see, no matter how far falsehood has travelled, it must eventually be overtaken by truth!"
