The Inspector-General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, has ordered an investigation into an alleged statement credited to a potential killer cop, Inusa Biu, on his Facebook account.
The News Agency of Nigeria ( NAN) reports that an online publication on April 26, credited a statement to Inusa captioned “Policeman threatens to kill 200 Nigerians if Buhari dies.”
The Force spokesman, CSP Jimoh Moshood, disclosed this in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday.
Moshood stated that policemen were under obligation not to make unauthorised public comments.
He said Nigeria Police Force is a highly discipline organisation with full observation and compliance with professional ethics and decorum.
The spokesman said that the comment was a distraction “and absolutely a shadowy imagination of the writer and should be disregarded.”
He assured the public of police renewed determination and commitment to maintain law and order.
