Benue Killings: Buhari ‘Queries’ IGP

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday summoned the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris over his “breach of the order” to relocate to Benue following the killings in the state.

According to a statement via the presidency’s twitter handle, the President demanded a full report on police operations in the affected States, after which further decisions would be taken.

The statement read “Pres @MBuhari today summoned the Inspector-General of Police to explain his flouting of the presidential order to remain in Benue State.

“The President has also asked for a comprehensive report on Police Operations in the affected States, after which further decisions will be made.

“We would like to restate our determination to ensure that the attacks and killings are brought to an end and perpetrators to justice.

“President @MBuhari’s Visit to the affected States continues, following the Trips to Taraba and Benue. Next are Yobe, Zamfara and Rivers States.”

Recall that Buhari during a visit to Benue on Monday said he was unaware the IGP failed to heed his order.
