Police: IGP is first defender of democracy

The Nigerian Police Force (NPF) have reacted to the Senate declaration on Wednesday that its Inspector General , Ibrahim K. Idris, conversely is the first defender of democracy, reports ITRealms.

The Senate, ITRealms recalled had declared IGP Ibrahim Idris, as an ‘enemy of democracy’ who is unfit to hold a public office.

But in a press statement endorsed Wednesday by the Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, the police said the IGP is not as claimed by Senate, rather he will never be an enemy of democracy, because “Police is the first defender of democracy in Nigeria.”

“It is urgently imperative that the Nigeria Police Force respond to this resolution of the Senate which is a deliberate blackmail, witch-hunting, unfortunate and mischievous.

“It is important to correct the impression created in the minds of the people from the Senate’s resolution that the IGP is not and will not be an enemy to democracy.

“It is also of significant note to state that IGP Ibrahim K. Idris has served meritoriously for above 10 years in the United Nations Peace Keeping Operations in several countries unblemished. The Nigeria Police Force is the first defender of Democracy and all democratic institutions in Nigeria and will continue to do so,” the statement read in part.
