- He states that the Kano state police command will continue to carry out its duties in accordance with the Nigerian constitution
- PDP reacts to the failure of Ibrahim Idris to honour Senate’s invitation
Rabi’u Yusuf, the commissioner of police in Kano state, has said the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, would not be hindered by campaign of calumny and intimidation in discharging his statutory duties.
Daily Trust reports that Yusuf made the statement in reaction to the recent claims by the National Assembly that the IGP was an enemy of democracy and unfit to hold public office.
He said the quality service to the members of the public would always be the priority of the Nigerian Police Force under the police boss.
Yusuf said: “Kano state police command wishes to reiterate our unalloyed loyalty to President Muhammadu Buhari and IGP. We pledged our total confidence and support to the Inspector-General of Police.”
The police commissioner stated that the Kano state police command will continue to carry out its duties in accordance with the Nigerian constitution and police act.
Yusuf disclosed that Idris would visit Kano to commission a sophisticated tracking machine installed to checkmate activities of criminals in the state.
“The modern tracking machine will help the police in their fight against criminal activities in the state. I have confidence that the machine will reduce crimes in Kano,” he stated.
Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has criticised the repeated snub of Senate’s invitation by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, and described the attitude as “an assault on Nigeria’s democracy”.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), reports that Idris, who was expected to appear before the Senate on Tuesday, failed to show up. It was the third time the Police boss was failing to honour such invitation.
The PDP, in its reaction to the development, said that it was “very wrong” for the IGP to ignore the invitation, saying that he had missed a chance to share ideas with the lawmakers on ways to tackle the insecurity in the nation.
