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.
‘It is disingenuous to accuse everyone who calls for restructuring as trying to break up the county. History tells us that that kind of cheap blackmail will not work as long as the underlying reasons for the agitations persist.’
‘The biggest challenge seems to be that we seem to be allowing moderate voices on this issue to be drowned out by the reckless utterances of a few rabble rousers on all sides who may be tools in the hands of those who do not wish this country well. These are some of the people who arrogate to themselves the toga of spokespersons of our diverse groups.’
