Herdsmen Killings: 'Sack IG Now', Reps Tell Buhari
The House of Representatives on Wednesday asked President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, over his “lack of capacity” to address security challenges in the country, particularly the killings by herdsmen in Benue State and the insecurity in Kano State.
The resolution was passed after lawmakers debated two motions: one on the killings by herdsmen in Benue State, and the second on the “need to curb thuggery development in political activities in Kano and Nigeria in general".
The two motions were later amended to a motion for the sacking of the IG.
Ruling on the motion to sack the IGP, the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, said, “If we pass this amendment, it means that the entire House has passed a vote of no confidence in the IGP.
“I will go ahead and put the question since that is the decision of the House".
The House also directed Idris to apologise to the Governor of Benue State, Samuel Ortom, over a statement made by the Force's spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, calling the governor a “drowning man.”FOR MORE FRESH STORIES, DOWNLOAD BOUNCE NEWS APP HERE
