Police Go After Man Behind IGP Embarrassing Video
Another stunning case of fake news made the rounds across Nigeria on Thursday and Friday.
Police authorities have begun a manhunt for the journalist posted the viral video showing the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, struggling to read a speech at a public event in Kano.
Aminu Nurudeen of Liberty Television believed to have posted the original copy is being hunted after refusing the police invitation.
Nurudeen has since gone into hiding.
It was gathered that Kano State Police Command invited the reporter to its office immediately the video went viral.
Police authorities are upset with the journalist because he had allegedly disobeyed a directive by the Kano State Police Command to journalists present at the event not to report the IG’s blunder or make the video public.
According to sources, the IG’s blunder brought an abrupt end to the event, leading the police chief’s handlers to hurriedly usher him away from the venue of the event.
But to the embarrassment of the Kano Police CP, Nurudeen posted the offensive video.
In the video, the police boss stumbled over nearly every word in the address, pronouncing transition as transmission and generally bungling his remarks.
In a part of the transcription of the footage, Idris said, “I mean, transmission, I mean effort, that the transmission cooperation to transmission, I mean transmission to have effect, ehm, apprehend, I mean, apprehensive towards the recommendation, recommended formation effective and effect, I mean, apprehensive at the transmission of…and transmission and transmission for the effective in the police command.”
