A video of the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, struggling to read his speech as he kept making mistakes, went viral and trended on the internet.
The recording was made in Kano State during the launching of the Nigeria Police Force Technical Intelligence Unit.
Many had tried to understand the video, to figure out why the IG was unable to read the words.
The Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Relations & Diaspora, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, took to Twitter to explain that the video was doctored.
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 😡 https://t.co/Ii2liRWVKb
