ABUJA - Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has sacked Inspector General of Police Hafiz Ringim and his six deputies, the presidency said on Wednesday, a week after the main suspect in a Christmas Day bomb attack escaped from police custody.

"President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan has approved the appointment of Mr. Mohammed Abubakar as Acting Inspector General of Police as a first step towards the comprehensive reorganization and repositioning of the Nigeria Police Force," a presidency statement said.

"Mr. Abubakar who is currently an Assistant Inspector General of Police replaces Mr. Hafiz Ringim who proceeds on terminal leave with effect from today."
