A civil society organisation, Arise Nigeria Initiative (ANI), has asked the House of Representatives to leave the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris alone to perform his constitutional duties.
Reacting to call by members of the House of Representatives, demanding the sack of the IGP over failure to handle security issues in the country, its publicity secretary, Amos Gizzor, said the IGP has performed credibly.
According to him, the IGP should not be judged by the killings in Benue State.
The statement said, “Idris is an officer with impeccable track records who earned his position at the top echelon of the force. We as a group identify with this fine service man that has done well for the country.
“It is under Idris that we saw massive fight against Kidnapping, armed robbery and corruption in the force. Based on his achievements, we want him to be allowed to continue his work of securing lives and property of Nigerian.
“We recall that the Benue State commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, told newsmen in Makurdi that the officer who was being searched and returned hale and hearty and had even joined his colleagues at his primary duty post.
“We expect that the force should be commended for this and fight against hardened kidnappers and armed robbers arrested recently and, for ensuring peace in many parts of the country.
