Mr. Sobulo died on Friday in Atlanta Georgia, United States of America, after a protracted illness.
The eldest son of the late Commissioner, Robert Sobulo, who confirmed the death, said he got the news around midnight Nigerian time.
He said his sister, Laila, who was with their father in the U.S., called to inform him of his death while he was already sleeping in Nigeria.
He said his father would be buried in Atlanta Georgia after a family meeting currently going on.
“The vacuum my father’s death has created cannot be filled in the family and his profession.
“He was dedicated to the police profession and his family. He was an operational person.
