President Goodluck Jonathan has sacked his special adviser on counter-terrorism, two weeks after a car bomber killed 23 people at the
office of the United Nations, a presidential spokesman said yesterday. Abuja
Spokesman Reuben Abati would not give details on why former counter-terrorism Chief Zakari Ibrahim was removed.
“Ambassador Ibrahim is no more the counter-terrorism adviser and coordinator on counter-terrorism matters, he has been replaced by Major General Sarkin Bello, who is now saddled with the responsibility to counter the rising wave of bombings in the country,” he said.
