Police IG, Buhari meet over Benue, other killings


President Muhammadu Buhari has met with the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, following the incessant killings going on in many parts of the country.

The security situation across the country particularly the killings recorded in Benue, Rivers and Kaduna states have resulted in loss of many lives.

He revealed that Buhari gave him a directive to tighten up the nation’s security.

“Every time we meet with the President, he gives a charge. He said that we should go and take care and ensure that we tighten our security.

Idris in his assurance said the country was, “well secured.”

“I think what we should be praying for is for Nigerians to learn to live in peace with one another. I think is very important,” he added.

Asked if his men were overwhelmed, Idris replied, “We cannot be overwhelmed.”

Adding, “Obviously, it (Benue crisis) is a communal crisis. Herdsmen are part of the community. They are Nigerians and are part of the community. Are they not?”
