Benue killings: Nigeria Police speaks on Buhari querying IGP Idris over disobedience

The Nigeria Police has reacted to report that President Muhammadu Buhari queried the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Ibrahim Idris for allegedly not obeying his order.

The police said claims by Presidency officials that Buhari had queried Idris as a result of the matter was false.

The Police boss met with President Buhari last week.

Recall that on his visit to Benue State early last week, President Buhari was told that the IGP flouted his order to relocate to the crisis-rocked state.

He was said to have spent one day in the state and jetted out to Nasarawa.

Speaking to ThisDay on the matter, Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, said,“The IGP was not queried.

“Anybody that said the IGP was queried by the president should bring the copy of the query, let us display it.

“There is very clear issue on that, that he was not queried by the President.”
