The Presidency has reacted to the viral video of the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, struggling to read a speech at an event in Kano.
In the footage, IGP Idris, who was in Kano on Monday to commission the Police Technical Intelligence unit in the state, stammered as he struggled to pronounce words.
But is the video real?
Expectedly, the clip stirred up reactions online as some Nigerians described the development as ’embarrassing to Nigerian Police Force’.
Reacting, the Senior Special Adviser to the President on Diaspora & Foreign Affairs, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said the video was doctored by mischievous persons.
On her Twitter page, she wrote, “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.”
The video also sparked public comments saying, that if the IG of police can not read his speech what do we now expect from the once below him.
