President Muhammadu Buhari summoned the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Adamu Abubakar Mohammed, to Aso Rock over the latest bloody protest by the members of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), also called Shiite.
It was learnt that at the closed-door meeting, IGP Adamu briefed the president on the latest protest by the Shiite group in Abuja.
The IGP also received instruction from the president that he should protect all Nigerians wherever they may live within the country.
After the meeting, the IGP speaking to journalists said, “We came this morning to brief Mr President on the security situation in the country, especially the activities of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria (IMN), just to give him an update of what is happening in the country vis a vis their activities.
“Specifically we briefed him of the incessant act coming out of this group of people, protesting here and there.” He said the president was also briefed on what he called ‘the fact’ that the police had been able to curtail the excesses of the protesters and that everything was under control.
“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 create breakdown of law and order.
“So, the charge by Mr President is that we must provide security for every Nigerian,” he added.
