Barely 48 hours after the former Inspector General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris bowed out of service, controversial rapper, Eedris Abdulkareem on Wednesday gave a farewell message to him.
The `One Leg up’ and `Jagajaga’ crooner took to his Instagram handle @abdulkareemeedris on Wednesday to give a farewell message to the former IGP.
“Former IGP Idris Ibrahim, I personally welcome you to another phase of life!
“I congratulate you as you join the class of Retired Public Office Holders (RPOH), If you did well as the Police Boss, may goodness follow you.
“But if you did bad because you were acting on instruction, causing untold hardship to innocent citizens, may your retirement be as miserable as the lives of those you made miserable,’’ he wrote.
