President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed that the inspector general of police, Ibrahim Idris did not heed his directives to relocate to Benue state.

Speaking at a townhall meeting, attended by farmers, herdsmen, the president appealed to the Benue people to exercise restraint and live in peace with their neighbours.

He denied insinuations that he overlooked the killings that happened in Benue, saying he is genuinely worried over them.
