- The president was joined by the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai
- President Buhari while exchanging pleasantries with Idris, asked him if he was back
The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris and Governor Nasir El-Rufai were among the hundreds of Muslim faithful that joined President Muhammadu Buhari to observe the 2-raka’at Friday prayer at the Aso Rock Mosque, Abuja.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) observed that the IG seized the opportunity to greet the president after the prayer session.
While exchanging pleasantries, President Buhari simply asked the Inspector-General ”are you back?”
It would be recalled that the Senate had on May 9 passed vote of no confidence on the IGP, describing him as “enemy of democracy’’ over his failure to honour its invitations twice.
Idris, however, asked the Deputy Inspector General of Police (Operations), Joseph Habila to represent at the senate.
Senate President Bukola Saraki on Wednesday also accused the IGP of trying to implicate him and Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed of Kwara in a criminal case involving some suspected cultists.
The Senate on Thursday, May 17, raised a 10-man panel to meet with President Buhari over the allegation leveled against the IGP by Saraki.
