SAN FRANCISCO, April 18, (THEWILL) – The Inspector General of Police, Alhaji Hafiz Ringim has blamed the riots and violence razing parts of Northern Nigeria in the aftermath of the Presidential election on groups and persons that have refused to accept defeat in the election.
Ringim also said the violence is neither ethnic nor religiously-motivated, vowing to apprehend the perpetrators.

“The security agencies are in the process of identifying and arresting the perpetrators behind this mindless mischief across the country.”
BBC HAUSA SERVICE CONNECTION
The BBC Hausa Service has been blamed for the riots and confusion in Adamawa State following its alleged broadcast that CPC presidential candidate, General Muhammadu Buhari had won the election in Adamawa State when the electoral commission in the state was still collating results.
The Special Adviser to the Adamawa State Governor Aminu Iyawa told journalists that the BBC broadcast was orchestrated to cause mischief and chaos. He said violence erupted after the electoral commission announced Goodluck Jonathan of the PDP as winner in the state.
Reports from our correspondent in Adamawa say the state government has imposed a 24-hour curfew in the state after riots broke out in various parts.
Several buildings and cars belonging to mostly Igbo traders were destroyed in Yola by youths on Sunday who also barricaded roads and razed the Jonathan campaign office there.
So far, 3 persons have been killed, while police say they have arrested about 50 persons carrying arms and jerry cans of petrol.
THEWILL correspondent also reports that violence has spread to Michika and Mubi, the commercial hub of the state.
Weeks later, Ringim missed death by whiskers.
