The Inspector General of Police, IGP, Idris Ibrahim, has reacted to a report in the media which credited a statement to him as regards the alleged affair with two junior policewomen.
Recall that a Nigerian senator, Misa, had alleged that the IGP had an affair with the two junior policewomen adding that the IGP impregnated a female officer who got married in a hurry thereby violating the rule of engagement in the force.
In reaction, a statement credited to the IGP had stated that there was no law barring him from marrying any policewoman, however, the earlier report has been denied with the IGP describing it as “Untrue and Unfounded, pure fabrications”.
The IGP in a statement released through the Police Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, reads:
“RE: I’m free to have romantic affair with any policewoman – IG
This story credited to Punch Online is Untrue and Unfounded, pure fabrications and a fake news.
It is a mischievous attempt to mislead and misinform members of the Public and as well cast aspersions on the person and hard earned reputation of the Inspector General of Police, IGP Ibrahim K. Idris NPM, mni.
What the IGP said in the document submitted to the Senate Ad-hoc committee investigating the spurious allegation against the IGP is that no law stops a Police Officer in Service to marry another Police Officer on an Officer cadre.
He never said I’m free to have romantic affairs with Police women.
Members of the public are implored to disregard and discountenance the story in its entirety.
The Inspector General of Police remains undistracted
CSP JIMOH MOSHOOD
Force Public Relations Officer.”
