President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday revealed that the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris disobeyed his directives to relocate to Benue.
The Cable quoted Ekiti State governor, Ayodele Fayose to have said “What manner of a President will give order to the IGP on January 9, only to be telling Nigerians on March 12 (2 months after) that he never knew that the IGP disobeyed his order?”
While it is not certain why the IGP left Benue, he reportedly delegated Joshiak Habila, DIG operations to coordinate security affairs in the state as he raced back to Abuja, The Cable said.
Five days later, pictures of him cutting a birthday cake on the occasion of his 59th birthday surfaced.
Sadly, the state recorded more killings after his departure but the smiles on the face of the number one police officer showed that he had a pleasant moment.
When Buhari visited Benue over two months later, he was told that Idris did not spend up to 24 hours in the north-central state.
