President Muhammadu Buhari had summoned Inspector-General of Police, Adamu Mohammed, to the Presidential Villa to get an update on the clash between the Police and the Islamic Movement in Nigeria, IMN, (a.k.a Shi’ites). President Buhari and Adamu met behind closed doors, yesterday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
The IGP, speaking with State House correspondents at the end of the meeting, the IGP said Buhari at the meeting directed him to take steps to protect all Nigerians wherever they might be.
“We came this morning (yesterday) to brief Mr. President on the security situation in the country, especially the activities of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, and to give him an update on what is happening in the country vis-a-vis their activities.
“Specifically we briefed him on the incessant acts of lawlessness coming out of this group of people, protesting here and there. We briefed him on the fact that we have been able to curtail their excesses and to let him understand that everything is under control,” Adamu said.
On the President’s reaction, the IGP said: “The President asked us to make sure we provide security for every citizen of this country and not to leave any space that some group of people will cause a breakdown of law and order. So, the charge by Mr. President is that we must provide security for every Nigerian.”
