Ibrahim Kpotum Idris

The Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, has summoned an Assistant Commissioner of Police, Mr Ayilara Olukayode to Abuja for questioning, over allegations of a N10 million bribe on his authority.

The summon follows a protest by a coalition of civil society organisations in Benue state over the bribery allegations.

They alleged that the executive chairman of the Benue State Board Of Internal Revenue was assaulted on Tuesday, by the head of the IGP X-Squad, Mr Olukayode, who was said to have demanded the sum.

The group, therefore, demanded the proscription of the IGP X-Squad, for alleged extortion, kidnapping of tax agents and serial collection of revenue.

Mr Idris, however, promised an unbiased investigation into the matter, assuring both the Benue state government and the coalition of civil society, that the police will address any form of injustice.
