Group Calls For IGP’s Removal Over Benue Crisis

A group under the auspices of Igede Nation in Diaspora, IND, Kaduna state chapter, have called for the removal of Ibrahim Idris, as the Inspector General of Police, accusing him of undermining democracy in the country.

 Sunday Oibe, chairman of the chapter, described the role played by the police in the recent impeachment notice served governor Samuel Ortom, as condemnable; saying the IGP should be held responsible for their actions.

“The police were said to have provided security to the eight lawmakers who sat to serve the impeachment notice to the governor.

The Nigerian police under Idris has become partisan in politics. President Muhammadu Buhari’s denial that he was not the mastermind of the undemocratic action is not enough if the IGP is not sacked.

“The people of Benue State should be allowed to solve their problems. We are not satisfied with the denial and condemnation of President Buhari.

He should step up his game by immediately sacking the Inspector General of Police because the police is suppose to be apolitical but what we are witnessing under this present administration is that the police and the Economic and Financial Crime Commission, EFCC, have become political tools for blackmail and witch hunting political opponents. This is very dangerous for our democracy.

The rule of law is the ink that drives the machinery of democracy everywhere in the world,” he stressed.
