The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, may have stirred another controversy after saying social media “is a technology for the criminally minded”.
Idris said this while fielding questions from newsmen shortly after attending a function in Abuja on Friday.
The Police boss was asked what the Force is currently doing about restructuring the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS) as more Nigerians are calling for the end of police unit.
Responding, Idris who expressed dismay at the question, said: “You see, you ahave to be careful about this clamouring.
“Social media is a technology available to those that are criminally minded and we have to be careful on how we respond to this clamouring as you are saying.
“SARS is a unit of the police that I believe should be sustained, what we are doing is to ensure that they are properly trained, and wwe are providing facilities for them that will make work easy for them.
“But I have to tell you that they are doing a very wonderful job.”
