Report has it that President Muhammadu Buhari is currently in a meeting with Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris.
The closed-door meeting started immediately in the President’s office at the State House Presidential Villa Abuja after the Friday prayers. The IGP’s meeting with Buhari has to do with the fact that Idris would be completing his 35 years in service this month and hence expected to retire compulsory.
An insider revealed to Premium Times that the fate of the IGP would be determined today after the course of the meeting.
“We are optimistic, but all will be known after this meeting,” he said.
Already there is clamour from opposition political parties and other civil rights groups to the President not to give him an extension of service. This is because Mr Idris has been called out severally for being partisan and incapable of managing the affairs of the Nigerian Police Force.
