The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris and senior members of the Police force are currently in London to visit the Metropolitan Police Service in furtherance of capacity building to tackle terrorism and other crimes.

A statement by the Force PRO, Ag. CP Don Awunah stated that the IGP is in London on the invitation of London’s Metropolitan Police Service as against the report that he went there to see President Muhammadu Buhari.

According to the statement, “the Inspector General of Police, IGP Ibrahim Idris has embarked on an official visit to London on the invitation of SO15, the London Metropolitan Police Service.

“The SO15 is part of the Metropolitan Police Service Counter Terrorism Command that
works for the protection of London and the United Kingdom, against threats of terrorism.

“This visit is part of the gains of the International donor platform established by the IGP on assumption of office in June, 2016 to empower Police personnel in modern techniques of fighting organised crimes.

“Although terrorism is being rapidly degraded in Nigeria, owing to the steadfastness of the Nigerian security system, there are collateral challenges confronting the nation such as kidnap for ransom, ethnic clashes and politically motivated murder.”

The Force PRO also noted that the visit will discuss areas of provision of working tools and capacity building for the Nigeria Police.

CP Awunah further stated that “for the avoidance of doubt, the IGP did not lead “a high powered delegation” to visit President Muhammadu Buhari, who is on vacation in London.
