Saraki Embarrasses Former IGP Idris In Public
The cold relationship between Senate President Bukola Saraki and the outgoing Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, was openly displayed on Tuesday in Abuja during the Armed Forces Remembrance Day Celebration.
Saraki refused to share a handshake extended to him by the former police boss.
Both of them were at the event held at the National Archade Abuja to mark the climax of activities of the 2019 Armed Forces Remembrance Day celebration.
The police chief, who was standing near the mounted podium at the event, had saluted the Senate President, preparatory to a handshake as has been the practice.
But instead of walking towards Idris to accept the handshake from him, Saraki steadily looked at him and walked away to shake the service chiefs who were standing beside the IGP.
But the case was different with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara,
Dogara, who had arrived the event in company of the Senate President, walked to the podium to take salutes. He later shook hands with the service chiefs including Idris.
Saraki had on several occasions accused Idris of being after his life.
He described Idris as the most partisan Police IG the country has ever had.
