The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has denied a media report that President Muhammadu Buhari was planning to sack him today.
Quoting a Presidency source, DAILY NIGERIAN exclusively reported that the president summoned the police boss over alleged siege to the residences of President of the Senate Bukola Saraki and his deputy Ike Ekweremadu today.
But in response to the story, the IGP, who spoke through his media adviser Bala Ibrahim, said Mr Idris was never summoned by the president to the State House today.
According to him, the IGP was at the Presidential Villa to see the President and Vice President on his own.
“Nobody summoned the IG. He was just there three times today to make some consultations. There are even some days that IG visits Villa more than 3 times.
“You know Vice President Yemi Osinbajo is a professor of Law, so there are certain decisions on policing that require some consultations in order to avoid violating the law,” Mr Ibrahim told DAILY NIGERIAN.
