    Asking Mohammed Abubakar to leave is not enough. While the IGP, he positioned a lot of State Police Commissioners who are at least just as mediocre as he is…some are even outright liars…therefore a lot of those State Police Commissioners also must leave with him. Especially the Imo State Police Commissioner, Mohammed Katsina, who lied in 2012 to cover up Boko Haram shoot-up of a Deeper Life Bible Church in Kogi state. But instead of firing this then-Kogi State Police Commissioner, Abubakar transferred him to Imo State!
