Information available to 247ureports.com indicates thatthe President of the federal republic of Nigeria, Dr. Goodluck Ebelemi Jonathan has fired the Inspector General of the Nigerian Police Force. The information was released on Tuesday afternoon of the sacking/retirement of the Police Chief.
Although the finer details to the sack of Ringim appear sketchly, it is certain the Police chief was released over his mishandling of the Boko Haram agent [Kabiru Umar aka Kabiru Sokoto] recently arrested but was allowed to escape from the police custody.
President Jonathan had handed a 24hour ultimatum tothe former Police Chief to fish out the escaped Boko Haram member – or be sacked. At the expiration of the ultimatum, the former Police chief failed to produce the escaped suspect. Six other DIG’s were also sacked.
MD Abubakar takes over as the new Inspector General of Police.
