According to Punch, a source said that the IGP’s blunders brought an abrupt end to the event which held in Kano state.

The source said that Idris’ handlers had to whisk him away following the embarrassment which his inability to properly read the speech caused.

The Genesis of the transmission

On Wednesday, May 16, 2018, Voice of Liberty published a video of the police boss struggling to read.

The incident took place in Kano state on Monday, May 14, 2018, where he went to commission the Force Technical Intelligence Unit.

The video of the IG went viral on social media, prompting many people to give different interpretations and angles to the video.
