IG Orders Investigation into Threat by Policeman to Kill 20 Nigerians If Buhari Dies


The Inspector General of Police (IG), Ibrahim Idris, has ordered investigation into allegation that an unidentified policeman has threatened to kill 200 Nigerians if President Muhammadu Buhari dies.

According to a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, said: “The attention of the Nigeria Police Force has been drawn to an online publication on HOTGISTNAIJA on April 26, credited to a yet-to-be identified policeman’s Facebook account on the above caption: ‘Policeman threatens to kill 200 Nigerians if Buhari dies.’

He said the IG has, therefore, ordered immediate investigation into the “unfortunate personal comments purportedly made by the alleged police officer named Inusa Saidu Biu on his facebook account, saying police man are under obligation not to make unauthorised public comments.”

Moshood said: “It is pertinent to state that the Nigeria Police Force is a highly discipline organisation with full observation and compliance with professional ethics, decorum, respect for proper behaviour and good manners within the ranks of personnel of the Force, the comment therefore, is a distraction and absolutely a shadowy imagination of the writer and should be disregarded and discountenance in its entirety.

“The force is therefore assuring the general public of it renewed determination and commitment to maintain law and order and guarantee the protection of lives and property of all Nigerians throughout the country.”
