The journalist who recorded and shared the video of Inspector General of Police Ibrahim Idris stumbling during a speech has gone into hiding and is scared for his life.
The video by Aminu Nurudeen, a Nigerian Journalist first appeared on Twitter and showed the IG of Police struggling to get through his speech, repeating the words “transmission” and “I mean” and apologising for it.
Nurudeen, worked with Voice of Liberty, had reportedly been invited by the police after the video went viral. The IG had reportedly been embarrassed by the video and had ordered an investigation into its release.
The Kano State Police Command had reportedly issued a directive to journalists present at the event not to make the report Idris’ blunder.
Although people present at the event report the video to be the true nature of things, the IG and his team declared that the video has been tampered with and isn’t original, but has refused to produce the original version of the clip.
