House backs Ortom against IGP, gives police boss tall order



Spread The News
The House of Representatives has ordered the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to apologise to Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom.
The Force headquarters described the governor Tuesday as a “drowning man”.
Jimon Moshood, police public relations officer, made a statement in which he so described Ortom during a Channels TV programme, Morning Rise, yesterday.
In its debate on the killings by herdsmen in Benue State, the House asked Idris to apologise to the state governor.
Ortom has been tackling the police boss since the herdsmen-farmer violence escalated in Benue state. The anger boiled over when Idris said the anti-open grazing law the state enacted should be repealed.
Ortom had said the IGP was aiding herdsmen terrorists, and such he was not qualified to lead the Nigeria police.
