IGP AbbaThe Arewa Consultative Forum, ACF, has demanded explanations from President Goodluck Jonathan over his sacking of the Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba on Tuesday.

President Jonathan had sacked the Police chief yesterday, giving no reason for his sack. He also appointed an Assistant Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, as the acting IG.

Chairman of the forum and a former Inspector-General of Police, Alhaji Ibrahim Coomasie, who spoke to Channels Television in an interview, pointed out that the sacking of the IGP few days after the last general elections and just over a month to the handover of power to a new government is suspicious and raised questions of a political motive.

Mr. Coomasie noted that rather than removing Mr Abba unceremoniously, what the president ought to have done was allow him to continue in office until the next government comes in and determine his fate alongside other service chiefs, most of whom have been accused one time or the other of being partisan.

He insisted that the president’s sacking of Mr. Abba while retaining other service chiefs has created room for suspicion on what could be the motive behind his action.

The ACF Chairman, therefore, called on President Jonathan to explain to Nigerians, his reason for sacking the former IGP in order not to give room for speculations and allegations from different quarters.

  1. What arewa fails to understand is that there is no length an aggrieved person cannot go to express his annoyance. I am sure the sack is a fallout of the failure at the polls.
