The House of Representatives, on Wednesday, February 7, called on President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, with immediate effect.

New Telegraph reports that the resolution was taken following the adoption of a motion of urgent national importance sponsored by Hon. Nuhu Damburam (APC, Kano) on the need to curb thuggery development in political activities in Kano and the nation at large.

We gathered that the House said it has lost confidence in the IGP Ibrahim to lead the police in curbing the rising tide of crime and violence across the country.

Leading debate on the motion, Danburam said the “recent thuggery experience in Kano was championed by a current high ranking member of this hallowed chamber. I have photographs as being circulated in the social media as evidenced to back my position”

He lamented that: “unfortunately, the Nigerian Police Force and other security agencies, which sometimes are present at the scene of thuggery have deliberately refused to take appropriate actions against the perpetrators of this illegal act. The ugly development has denigrated the Nigerian political system home and abroad”

Danburam prayed his colleagues to use available legislative instruments to discourage and curb the barbaric act of terror on visionary politicians.

While debating the motion, the chief whip, Hon. Alhassan Ado Doguwa (APC, Kano) vehemently opposed the motion but the majority of the lawmakers supported the motion.

Following an amendment moved by Hon. John Dyegh (APC, Gboko) and a voice vote by Speaker Yakubu Dogara, the motion was overwhelmingly endorsed calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the IGP immediately for incompetence and appoint a replacement.

Meanwhile, We had earlier reported that the House of Representatives on Wednesday, February 7, ordered the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, to apologise to Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue state while it ordered the removal of Moshood Jimoh, the force public relations officer.

The House of Representatives gave this order in reaction to how Jimoh described Governor Ortom as a drowning man during a programme on Channels Television on Tuesday, February 6.

The Punch reports that the House was debating a motion on the attacks by alleged herdsmen in Benue state, when the lawmakers asked Ibrahim Idris to apologise to Ortom.

In the motion which enjoyed the support of most of the lawmakers, the conduct of the police officer was roundly condemned.
