President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday met behind closed doors with the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris.
The meeting took place at the President’s office shortly after the Jumma’at prayer at the State House mosque.
Idris was expected to retire from service on attainment of the mandatory 35 years in service on Thursday.
A source on Friday said that the fate of the police boss will be known after the meeting.
“We are optimistic, but all will be known after this meeting,” the source said.
Idris at the end of the meeting did not speak with journalists and no official statement yet on the latest development.
Idris was appointed by President Buhari on 21 March 2016, to replace Solomon Arase, who retired from the police force on 21 June 2016.
The 59- year old Ibrahim Idris enlisted into the Nigerian Police Force in 1984, after graduating from the Ahmadu Bello University Zaria with a bachelor’s degree in Agriculture. THE NATION NEWSPAPER
