President Buhari Summons IGP, Demands Explanation Over Benue Controversy

President Muhammadu Buhari has summoned and met with the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, over his reported failure to follow the President’s directive after the killings in Benue.

The President met with the IGP on Tuesday morning, a day after Benue leaders told him that the IGP did not comply with his directive to relocate to Benue over the killings by suspected herdsmen.

They informed him that while the IGP visited the state after his directive, he spent less than a day there before relocating to Nasarawa where he spent more time.

President Buhari, however, told them he did not know that the IGP disobeyed his directive and was only hearing about it.
