President Goodluck Jonathan sacks Suleiman Abba!
There has been shock at the news that,President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has sacked the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Suleiman Abba with immediate effect.There are whispers that the reason why Goodluck Jonathan sacked Suleiman Abba's  is believed
to be the fallout of President Jonathan's failure to win the March 28 presidential election. It was gathered that Abba had failed to provide sufficient security cover for the ruling PDP agents to rig the general elections for the ruling party after huge funds were released to him  by the presidency for that purpose. President Goodluck Jonathan was said to have been particularly irked by Suleiman Abba igp's sudden switch of loyalty to the President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari and his party, the APC soon after Buhari won the March 28 election. 

President Jonathan has also appointed Deputy Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase as Acting Inspector-General of Police, also with immediate effect. Until his appointment as Mr. Abba’s replacement, Mr. Arase was the Head of the Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department. A statement announcing Abba's sack however failed to disclose the reason for his immediate sack. Mr. Arase holds Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Law, as well as  Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Political Science and Strategic Studies. He is also a Fellow of the Nigerian Defence College. 

A pressure group from Ekiti also waded in with their own version of reasons for Suleiman Abba's sack..they released a press release below...

The pressure group in Ekiti State, the Ekiti Democratic Coalition (EDC) has hailed the removal of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Suleiman Abba, accusing the sacked IGP of collaborating with the All Progressives Congress (APC) to subvert the mandate of Ekiti people freely given to Governor Ayodele Fayose. 
Reacting to the sack of Suleiman Abba, EDC, in a statement signed by its Convener, Comrade Boladale Adeniyi, alleged that the sacked IGP and the immediate past Commissioner of Police in the State, Taiwo Lakanu aided the APC lawmakers in their evil plot to remove Governor Fayose.
 The group alleged that Suleiman Abba was to be used by the APC to subvert democracy in Ekiti and some other PDP controlled States. "Lakanu was removed unceremoniously as Ekiti State Commissioner of Police. Now, Suleiman Abba too has been sacked. "The major lesson to be learnt here is that Fayose’s mandate is being guarded by God and He is ready to humiliate anyone working against the people's governor," EDC said.

The group warned the APC lawmakers to tread the path of peace and development rather than advertising their hatred for Ekiti and its people. It said; "If you were using Lakanu against Ekiti people and Lakanu was removed, you were also using IGP Suleiman Abba, he has now been sacked, shouldn't it be clear to those plotting against Fayose that they are hitting their heads against Ekiti rocks?

"The fate that befell CP Lakanu and IGP Suleiman Abba is enough to tell those still running from pillar to poll, plotting Fayose’s impeachment to understand that Fayose holds Ekiti people's mandate and fighting against him is like fighting against the entire people of Ekiti and the Lord who created them."
