The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Idris
Ibrahim, on Friday, visited the Presidential
Villa, Abuja, where he was reported to have
met behind closed-doors with President
Muhammadu Buhari.

The IGP, who was reported to have clocked 35
years in service of the Nigeria Police Force on
Jan. 3, was sighted dressed in his official
uniform moving straight towards the
president’s office.

According to media reports, Idris was expected
to retire from service on attainment of the
mandatory 35 years in service on Thursday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), however,
gathered that the tenure of the IGP might have
been extended even though no official
statement had been released to this effect.

An aide very closed to the IGP, who preferred
not to be named, told NAN that the IGP’s visit
to the villa might not be unconnected with the
issue of his extension.

“We are hopeful that the tenure of our IGP has
been extended by Mr President because you
can see him today in his official uniform even
though the media said he was to retire
yesterday (Thursday).

“But all will be known after this meeting,” the
source said.

IGP Idris, who was appointed by President
Buhari on March 21, 2016, replaced Solomon
Arase, who retired from the police force on 21
June 2016.

Idris, who will be clocking 60 years on Jan. 15,
2019, enlisted into the Nigerian Police Force in
1984, after graduating from the Ahmadu Bello
University Zaria with a bachelor’s degree in
