The Inspector General of Police, Idris Ibrahim, has been asked to remain focus and ignore a baseless publications by one purported Austine Uche-Ejeke titled “Time for Inspector General of Police, Idris Ibrahim, to go” published on chidoonumah.com dated February 11, 2018.
In a swift reaction to the publication, the Publicity Secretary of Integrity Youth Alliance, Danjuma Lamido condemned the false and fabricated publications; which in anyway will not deterred the IGP from performing his constitutional duties of Policing the country.
online online “We wonder how somebody will sit in his bedroom and start speaking for majority of Nigerian that “Feelers from a great majority of Nigerians indicate that this present Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris is about the worst Inspector General of Police since the assumption of indigenous Inspector General of Police in the country”, what a fraudulent way of seeking public opinion on an amiable IGP, Lamido said.
“It is on record that Police road blocks was outlawed by this amiable IGP and we had sanity on the roads, the purported writer should know what he is seeing, if ever he has seen any, is stop and search and not road block. This IGP has made room for public complaint against any erring Police personnel which has recorded huge success since its establishment.
He further reiterated that since IGP Idris became the Inspector General of Police, he has embarked on several training for the personnel of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS and reorganization of the Squad was not left out.
“The Special Anti-Robbery Squad has not enjoy training and retraining under any IGP like that of Ibrahim Kpotun-Idris, the records are there for all to see, Lamido said.
“We challenge the purported writer to mention just one pro government protesters the Nigeria Police has provided protection for and any anti-government the Police has not provided protection for.
“On the Fulani herdsmen killings in Benue State, we are glad the IGP is been justified by the Fulani herdsmen community in Benue State by coming out to say Governor Samuel Ortom failed to fulfill his promises to the 25,000 Fulanis that voted him into office. If the Fulanis didn’t constitute a community in Benue State, how come 25,000 registered as voters?

“To further show the ignorance of the purported writer, he said “how can a serving Inspector General of Police come out openly to say that the cause of the crisis and killings in Benue State is as a result of enactment of Anti Open Grazing law by Governor Ortom?” We once again challenge him to show prove of evidence where the amiable IGP Ibrahim Kpotun-Idris said that.
Lamido further commended the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Jimoh Moshood for defending the institution of the Nigeria Police Force. It is high time the Police Force is respected as an institution with the primary objective of protecting lives and properties of Nigerians.
The House of Representatives has no power to sack an appointee not confirmed by them, they should rather face their legislation duties, Lamido said.
“Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Kpotun-Idris will remained focus and not be distracted by mushroom publisher and editor-in-chief. We know IGP Idris is not giving room for their nefarious activities hence different write up to discredit him but they have failed on arrival because IGP Ibrahim Kpotun-Idris will serve to the end of this administration, the statement concluded.
