Trouble awaits the Inspector General of Police, IBRAHIM IDRIS, for not fully complying with a presidential directive to visit Benue State in the wake of the deadly clashes between herdsmen and farmers.


President MUHAMMADU BUHARI said he was going to answer questions for allegedly spending only a day in Benue State.


President BUHARI gave this indication on arrived in Makurdi on official visit, when he confirmed that he had only just been informed that the IGP spent only a day in Benue State.


Speaking during a meeting with stakeholders at the Government House in the state capital, President BUHARI said he will engage the IGP for inquires upon his return to Abuja.


President BUHARI was reacting to the demands by Governor SAMUEL ORTOM that the IGP steer clear of partisan politics as a Police Chief and desist from holding an opinion on which law to implement or not.


The President noted that the IGP is slow in using the intelligence and resources available to him but as a loyal leader, all he did was give the directive to the IGP instead publicly exposing his incompetence.
