Naira Scarcity: We Are Investigating Incitement By Governors–IGP




The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Baba Usman Alkali has revealed that the force is investigating some governors and individuals whose utterances are considered to have incited riots over the naira redesign policy of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

Alkali stated this at the end of Wednesday’s National Security Council meeting, presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari. The IGP told journalists that those found guilty will be prosecuted. However, governors will not be prosecuted because they enjoy immunity.

Alkali said;

“We all know why the governors have not been cautioned. We are investigating. Whoever does anything can be investigated.

“However, there are some people who have immunity. I think that is one of the reasons why they have not been cautioned.

“The immunity will not stop us from cautioning them; from warning them; from advising them; and we are doing so.’’
