How IG Of Police Almost Caused a Bloody Shootout at CBN HQ

4 years ago

Nigeria Police IG Ibrahim Idris almost caused a shootout at the CBN headquarters on Wednesday Sahara Reporters claims.

IG Idris and his entourage reportedly arrived on a visit to the CBN headquarters at about 5:45pm and, instead of driving through the visitors’ gate via Tafawa Balewa Way, he and his entourage breached protocol and tried to forced their way into the CBN Headquarters through the staff gate.

There was a near-violent clash between his entourage and the CBN security apparatus, comprising Directorate of State Security operatives, soldiers as well as private security personnel, reports say as gun-wielding officers on both sides cocked their weapons and got ready to shoot.

It took the intervention of the CBN’s Director Security Services and top officials of the apex bank to restore calm.
