Threat to kill 200 Nigerians: Police begin investigation
The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has ordered immediate investigation into the “unfortunate personal comments purportedly made by the alleged Police officer named Inusa Saidu Biu on his facebook account,” threatening to kill 200 Nigerians if President Muhammadu Buhari dies.
While urging Nigerians to disregard the threat, he pointed out that Police officers were under obligation not to make unauthorized public comments.
In a statement by CSP Jimoh O Moshood, the Force Public Relations Officer,
Abuja, the Police boss assured the public of the force’s renewed determination and commitment to maintain law and order and guarantee the protection of lives and property of all Nigerians throughout the country.
He reminded Nigerians that the Nigeria Police Force was a highly discipline organization with full observation and compliance with professional ethics, decorum, respect for proper behaviour and good manners within the ranks of personnel of the Force.
According to him, the Facebook “comment therefore, is a distraction and absolutely a shadowy imagination of the writer and should be disregarded and discountenance in its entirety.”
He said the story was an online publication on HOTGISTNAIJA on 26/4/2017 credited to a yet to be identified Policeman’s Facebook account on the above caption “Policeman threatens to kill 200 Nigerians if Buhari dies”.
