Presidency reacts to video of IGP Idris struggling to read speech in Kano

Following the viral video of the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, struggling to read a speech at an event in Kano which is circulating social media, the presidency has responded that the video is not authentic.

In the footage, IGP Idris, who was in Kano on Monday to commission the Police Technical Intelligence unit in the state, stammered consistently as he struggled to pronounce words.

After a failed attempt to get his speech right, he apologised to his audience.

However, the clip stirred up reactions online as some Nigerians described the development as ’embarrassing and a shame to Nigerian Police Force’.

Reacting, the Senior Special Adviser to the President on Diaspora & Foreign Affairs, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said the video was doctored by mischievous persons.

On her Twitter page, she wrote, “This video is definitely doctored. A lot of people have however accused her of insincerity.

Mohammed Abdulsalam on instagram has come forward to say that he was a witness of the whole event and the IGP was truly not himself.
According to Mohammed, the IGP was completely out of his mind and his aides said he was under a spiritual attack.
