A video of the Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, battling to read his own speech at the commissioning ceremony of the Force Technical Intelligence Unit in Kano has gone viral.

The video has drawn so much comments.

While some fear the video may have been doctored, others identified characteristics that showed it was not doctored. 

Mr Idris was captured stuttering and battling to pronounce some words in his speech. There was no flow in the reading of the speech at all as shown in the video. 

The police is yet to issue a statement on the video and its authenticity, but one thing that makes the video appear real was the assistance he requested for at some point.
