Presidency reacts to IGP Idris’ ‘transmission’ video

Police deny siege on Saraki’s house, say we’ll use any means necessary to get him

The alleged video of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, struggling to read a speech at an event in Kano on Monday has drawn response from the Presidency.

The footage of the video which has been trending on the social media showed the IGP desperately trying in vain to read his speech and ending up not making sense.

He was said to have committed the alleged goof in Kano on Monday during the commissioning of the Police Technical Intelligence unit in the state.

After much vain efforts to make sense in delivering the speech, he apologised to his audience.

Responding to the video, Senior Special Adviser to the President on Diaspora and Foreign Affairs, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, described the video as doctored.

“This video is definitely doctored. The error was made once, then special effects used to repeat it. What I don’t understand is why anyone would believe. Well, it’s a Social Media world.”

Already, fingers are being pointed at some people in the Senate for being responsible for putting out the video, as a way to discredit the IGP for his refusal to appear before the lawmakers.
