The Transmission Speech! Between the IGP Idris, the Presidency and ‘Merciless’ Nigerians

The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris commanded the headlines recently after a video of him struggling to read his own speech went viral.

In the viral video, IGP Idris, who visited Kano State to commission the Police Technical Intelligence unit, stuttered repeatedly he struggled to pronounce his words.

After several failed attempts to get his speech right, the IGP apologised to his stunned audience.

Watch the clip below.

In a swift reaction to the unflattering clip, the Senior Special Adviser to the President on Diaspora & Foreign Affairs, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said the video was doctored by mischievous persons.

Dabiri-Erewa, still in the public consciousness after her role in the scandalous Martin Luther King Award for President Muhamadu Buhari, wrote on Twitter: “This video is definitely doctored. The error was made once, then special effects used to repeat it. What I don’t understand is why anyone would believe. Well, it’s a Social Media world.”

While the weakness of her defence was laid bare after the full clip of the speech emerged, the IG has insisted he’s the victim of internet manipulators.

Nigerians however are not buying it, and they have since taken to social media to rip the errant IG to shreds.

Warning! Some of the tweets are merciless…
