Prolific journalist, SSA to the President on Foreign Relations Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa has defended Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris over the viral video that depicts he couldn’t read his speech in Kano state on Wednesday, saying the video was edited.
She insisted IGP Idris made the mistake just once, but someone used special effects to repeat it.
“This video is definitely doctored.. The error was made once , then special effects used to repeat it What I don’t understand is why anyone would believe Well, it’s a SM world.” She said.
She said this in response to a comment on Twitter that IGP might be suffering from dyslexic and needs medical attention.

If this video is genuine, I’ve been advised the IG may be dyslexic. If that is the case, it is no laughing matter, and not something he should be ridiculed for. A lot of kids are dyslexic. We must ensure that they are not bullied or stigmatised. They too can become IG of Police. https://t.co/eqlvEopZ6Z
