Acting Police IG, Solomon Arase, Senior To Outgoing Police Boss, Suleiman Abba by ManiCypher(m): 1:02pm On Apr 22, 2015
The newly appointed Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, is actually a senior officer to the outgoing IGP, Suleiman Abba, PREMIUM TIMES can authoritatively report.

Based on an internal police document obtained by this newspaper, Mr. Arase, an indigene of Edo State, was born on June 26, 1956 and joined the Nigeria Police Force on December 2, 1981.

However, the outgoing IGP, Mr. Abba, who hails from Jigawa State, was born on March 22, 1959 and was enlisted into the police on December 31, 1984, three years after Mr. Arase was enlisted.

Both officers were, however, promoted Assistant Inspector General of Police, AIG, on the same date – February 22, 2012 – shortly after Mohammed Abubakar was promoted IGP.

It is not clear how Mr. Abba caught up with Mr. Arase in rank, and eventually overtook him to become IGP.

However, on August 1, 2014, Mr. Abba was appointed Nigeria’s 17th indigenous IGP following the retirement of Mr. Abubakar from the service.
Until his new appointment, Mr. Arase was the head of the Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department and holds Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Law as well as Bachelors and Masters Degrees in Political Science and Strategic Studies.
Shortly before Mr. Abubakar retired from service, there were speculations that Mr. Arase, then the Assistant IGP in charge of the Police Intelligence Bureau, would be appointed IGP.

But with the appointment of Mr. Abba as IGP, Mr. Arase was elevated to Deputy Inspector General of Police in charge of the same unit.

Op... You rushed to press without any findings.

For your info. IGP is not based on seniority.

DIGs are seniors to AIGs.

Solomon was a DIG while Suleiman was an AIG.

GEJ appointed Suleiman (AIG) as the IGP even though we have about 7 DIGs. The next man in rank to the IGP is usually the DIG(Admin) but DIGs(Admin) are rarely made IGPs.

But like I said earlier, IGP appointment is not based on Seniority that is why being a DIG doesn't make you the next IGP

I just see people rambling, about Hausa - Fulani/ Islamic Nepotism. This has nothing to do with that.


Abba was promoted to serve a purpose, something he was doing rather well until the last few weeks, when he started to actually do part of his job. Abba Moro was not promoted to please Northern Muslim Hausa-Fulani, he was promoted to do a hatchet job for GEJ and PDP because of his past history as Aide de Camp to Mariam Abacha, something he did rather well until the general elections.

Your way of looking at Nigeria is the reason why all the brigands (hausa, yoruba, Igbo, nupe, igala, efik, muslim, Christian etc.) have been able to plunder Nigeria. The simple truth is that their good and bad people regardless of race, creed and colour.



I believe this is an excellent relative justice that is been observed. Same way Minima was promoted and 35 of his seniors has to go. The problem is that the men in uniform are no longer serving the nation but individuals as such any leader will need who will be loyal to him not to the nation. The involvement of uniform personnel into politics create the problem of their dishonest, distrust and franchise.

However there is hope as the next adminstration will try to appoint officers at and when they are due.

The general will make a difference.

Why did jonathan wait so long for the reform?
He removed Abba because Abba refused to be used.

I think any senior officer from the rank of CP can be appointed IGP.
From CP rank, all other appointments are more political than merit.
The right thing to do when elevating a junior is to retire all the seniors.
this is the only way loyalty can be entrenched.
