The House of Representatives on Wednesday instructed the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Ibrahim Idris, to apologize to Samuel Ortom after a derogatory comment by the Force spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood.

The lower legislative chambers gave the directive while currently debating a motion on the bills by herdsmen in Benue State.

Featuring on Channels tv, Moshood had yesterday described Governor Ortom as a “drowning man.”

The Police spokesperson made the comment while faulting some comments made by the governor, following crisis between Fulani herdsmen and farmers.
