Buhari Summons IGP Idris, Demands ‘Comprehensive Report’ On Police Operations In Benue

President Muhammadu Buhari

President Muhammadu Buhari has summoned the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, for disobeying a presidential directive to relocate to Benue state after the herdsmen attack that left over 70 people dead in Guma and Logo local government areas.

In a statement on Tuesday via the official Twitter handle of the Presidency, Mr Buhari also asked for a comprehensive report on police operations in Benue and other violence ravaged states.

According to the statement, further decisions will be taken by the President as regards the IGP’s alleged disobedience.

Recall that the President while on a working visit to Benue State on Monday expressed shock that the police IG disobeyed his directive to relocate to the state.

“I am getting to know this in this meeting. I am quite surprised,” Buhari said when he was told by the Benue people that IGP Idris barely spent 24 hours in the state.
