A former minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode, has blasted Femi Adesina over a statement concerning the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris’ alleged disobedience to President Muhammadu Buhari’s orders.
The Presidential spokesperson had said it remains an allegation that the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, failed to heed President Muhammadu Buhari’s directive to relocate to Benue.
Recall that the IGP was ordered by President Buhari to relocate to Benue shortly after the January killings in the state.
But the IGP was said to have spent less than a day in the state before moving to Nasarawa.
But during a visit to Benue on Monday, the president said he was unaware the IGP failed to heed his order.
Adesina, while reacting to the development said Buhari had no knowledge of what happened,adding that the president leaves you once he gives instructions.
He was quoted saying “The IG of Police can disobey President Buhari depending on the situation because he is answerable to the Police Service Commission, Buhari and Minister of interior.
“It’s in the public domain that he went from Benue to Nasarawa but nobody knew that he did not spend a night in Benue.I’m aware of it but I did not know the length of time he stayed in Benue before moving to Nasarawa.
“The president may not know everything. He didn’t know that the IGP allegedly left Benue after one day but he got to know yesterday. So there are some things you can’t hide forever. So yes, the president may not know everything.”
Reacting, Fani-Kayode said Adesina has lost his mind.
He wrote on his Twitter page “The I-G of Police can disobey President Buhari depending on the situation because he is answerable to the Police Service Commission”- Femi Adesina, Channels TV.
“It is clear that, like Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, Femi Adesina has lost his mind.
