Ekiti State governor, Ayo Fayose, has mocked President Muhammadu Buhari over his claim that the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, disobeyed him over the lingering crisis in Benue.

President Buhari on Monday denied knowledge of number of days the IGP spent in Benue State after he was ordered to relocate to the state.

Addressing stakeholders at the Government House in Makurdi, the President said he was just learning of the alleged noncompliance by the IGP.

He promised to call the police boss for inquires upon his return to Abuja, the ‎Federal Capital Territory.

“What I did was to call him and give him the directive. I didn’t know he moved here (Benue State) and didn’t spend … and then moved to Nasarawa. It’s only now that I am knowing that.

“But I know I dispatched him here,” the President said.

Reacting, however, Fayose said it was unfortunate that the president might not know what was happening in Nigeria.

He tweeted: “What manner of a President will give order to the IGP on January 9, only to be telling Nigerians on March 12 (2 months after) that he never knew that the IGP disobeyed his order? Does this President really know anything about happenings around him, not to talk aboutNigeria?” Daily post.
