Police reacts to report that IG almost caused bloodbath in Abuja

4 years ago

The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) on Friday described as false and misleading, a report that the acting Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Ibrahim Idris, almost caused a bloodbath, during his last visit to the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr. Godwin Emiefele, in Abuja.
A statement signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Donald Awunah, said “The attention of the Nigeria Police Force has been drawn to the online publication of Sahara Reporters of 4th August, 2016 captioned ‘How Acting IGP Almost Caused Bloodbath At Central Bank Of Nigeria Headquarters.’

“This story in its content and character was absolutely misleading and untrue in all its ramifications, indeed a misrepresentation of facts.”


It said there was no such scenario as described, adding that the report was certainly a creation of the figment of the imagination of the reporter whose motive can only be described as yellow journalism designed to discredit a public officer of proven records locally and internationally.

“The IGP Ibrahim Idris’s official visit to the Governor of Central bank with full complement of the police management team was a scheduled courtesy call that was planned and coordinated by the two organizations”, it added.
