President Goodluck Jonathan has disclosed why he fired the former IGP, Suleiman Abba.
According to the president, the former IGP was sacked following gross indiscipline amongst the personnel of the force during his tenure.
The chairman of the Police Service Commission, Mike Okiro, stated this to journalists following a Police Council meeting, chaired by President Goodluck 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.”
President Jonathan also confirmed the appointment of the new Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase.
