- Two commands of the Nigeria Police Force say they are behind Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris
- Rabi’u Yusuf, the commissioner of police in Kano state, says his command is expecting Idris
- The Kogi state command also believes Idris had helped to stem criminality since he became IGP
As the battle between the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, continues to battle the Nigerian Senate, the Kogi and Kano commands of the law enforcement agency, have passed a vote of confidence on their boss.
Daily Trust reports that the two commands were reacting to the resolution of the Senate which passed a vote of no confidence on Idris and declared him not fit to hold public office.
Rabi’u Yusuf, the commissioner of police in Kano state, reportedly said that no amount of campaign of calumny and intimidation will deter the IGP from discharging his statutory duties.
“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,” he said.
He noted that Idris would be visiting Kano on Friday, May 11, to commission a sophisticated tracking machine installed to checkmate activities of criminals in the state.
In Kogi also, the commissioner of police, Ali Janga, promised that the command would continue to display its loyalty and unflinching support for the good leadership qualities of the IGP.
He noted that such qualities have helped to stem the tide of crimes and criminality in the country.
Janga urged Nigerians to support the vision of the Ibrahim Idris.
