An Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba, has being named the acting Inspector-General of Police by President Goodluck Jonathan.

Abba, who until his appointment was the AIG in charge of Zone 7, takes over from Muhammed Abubakar, who proceeded on statutory retirement on Thursday.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Dr. Reuben Abati, who confirmed the change of guard in the police top echelons in a statement, said Abba's appointment would take effect from Friday (today).

The former IG had led Abba to a private meeting with the President shortly before his appointment was made public.

In an interaction with State House correspondents after the meeting, Abubakar thanked Nigerians for their support.

He described the position of an IG as challenging but said the experience was worthwhile.
