Following Senator Misa’s allegation that Nigeria’s Inspector General of Police, Idris Ibrahim, impregnated a female officer who hurriedly got married to thereby violating rules of engagement in the force, and a subsequent social media report in which the IG reportedly said he’s free to have a romantic relationship with any Police Officer, the Police Boss has debunked the report by Punch which he said is ‘Untrue and Unfounded, pure fabrications’.
The statement released on his behalf by 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 Policewomen.
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.”
