Benue: What Buhari told IGP Idris

President Muhammadu Buhari, on Tuesday, summoned the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, over his alleged refusal to relocate to Benue State to stem the tide of killings.

Buhari had directed the police boss to relocate to Benue in the wake of the killings which occurred on January 1, 2018.

However, during a tour of the states which had experienced loss of lives and property in recent time, Buhari visited Benue, but was told that IGP Idris did not carry out his order.

According to Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State, IGP Idris did not spend a whole day in the state as he relocated to Nasarawa State.

Amazed at the disclosure, the president promised to act on the issue.
