Senator alleges that the Inspector General of Police ordered his police security to abandon him at a very dangerous route in Jos that is notorious for kidnapping and killings

Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, the lawmaker representing Taraba South Senatorial District

Senator Emmanuel Bwacha, the lawmaker representing Taraba South Senatorial District, while contributing to the accusation raised by the President of the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Dr. Bukola Saraki, against the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, said that the IGP withdrew his police security because he criticized him.

According to Mr. Bwacha, the IGP apparently ordered the police operatives attached to him to abandon him on a particularly trip to Jos.

“I came into this chamber this morning to raise a different matter. When I heard from the President of the senate of this dangerous plot, I was humbled. Virtually every one of us stands the danger of this sort. What we should do is to also behave as if we are in the understanding that the president doesn’t know. Let us also go to him that our democracy is collapsing under your watch,” he said.

“On Thursday, I was travelling from Abuja to Jos with policemen; I requested legitimately through a route that is notorious for kidnapping and killings. While getting to Jos, the commander of the mobile called them and said, withdraw from him and go to the nearest police station. Leave him alone. I stopped and asked, ‘what is the matter’? My simple crime is that I told the media that it is wrong for the IG not to appear before us.”

“They told me that they needed to withdraw, that they had the instruction to leave me alone. I stopped there because I was afraid, I decided that let them leave so that they won’t know where I would lodge. So, I left them. They went to the nearest police station, abandoned me there. The next day, I managed to drive back to Abuja in fear,” he said when asked by his colleagues how he managed to escape.

    while not supporting the action of the IGP if it is true,but it is also good for the lawmakers to feel the sense of insecurity that the masses are subjected to.
