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.

    EX-COP comment should not be dismissed just like that, ‘cos there’s no smoke without fire. However, the new IGP will, i bliv, b professional in this national assignment so that his name will find a place in history.

    Are you guys saying that MD Abubakar was just appointed without any scrutiny? I am certain that he was selected base on merit. Please pray for the change to be positive to our country. Pray for better and safer Nigeria.

    It seems the muslims are getting defensive because they think excop doesn’t know what he is saying. Consider this: MD Abubakar, as far back as 2002, was recommended for dismissal by the Justice Niki Tobi panel on grounds that he was a religious bigot. He has also been accused of being the mastermind behind the (revenge) killings of Christians in Jos.
    In the spirit of the newfound religious unity growing between muslims and christians in northern Nigeria, I feel we should not be quick to dismiss EXCOP, especially if he actually is an Ex Cop and may therefore know factually things he cannot say here.

    Let’s give the man, Mr. Abubakar, a chance before passing judgment. Anybody who assumes the position of IGP knows that all eyes are on him and it will be unwise of him to put his religious ideology above his professional responsibilities.

    @Ex-Cop. Ur comment is disappointing. Just because MD Abubakar is Muslim, U started accusing him when U don’t actually knows who is he. Is it same hypocrisy that took us to where we are today.

    This is a fatal mistake by Mr. President. It`s like one selling his dog to buy a pussy cat. MD Abubakar is unrepentant religious bigot and an hardcore Islamist. It is not yet hurrah my people.
