Mohammed Dikko Abubakar
Christians in the Northern States and the FCT are wondering whether, in appointing Mohammed D. Abubakar
as the Acting Inspector General of Police, President Goodluck Jonathan knows what he
is doing, given the controversies that have trailed Abubakar's career as a religious fanatic.
The Christians asserted that the profile of Abubakar
does not befit an acting IG of police, wondering how a man who was indicted for religious fanaticism by a public Commission which recommended him for retirement or outright dismissal could have remained in the police force.
"It appears that some unpatriotic characters, especially in the Nigerian police are being allowed to have their ways in this country," the statement continued.
"We say this because there is similarity between Zakari Biu, a commissioner of police who set free a suspected Boko Haram bomber and Abubakar who supervised the killings and wanton destruction of lives and property in the 2001 crisis in Jos."
, they said, may also have been appointed to his
new position in order to to execute the worst Boko Haram activities, especially against Christians.
