The Inspector General of Police, Idris Ibrahim, has described as ‘untrue and unfounded, pure fabrications’ a report published by Punch where he allegedly said that he is free to have a romantic relationship with any police officer.
Recall that Senator Misau whom the IG is having a running battle with, had on October 4th, told members of the Senate that Ibrahim impregnated a female officer and hurriedly got married to her. According to Misau, romantic relationship involving police officers is against the rules of engagement in the force.
A statement by the Police Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, described the report by Punch as false and baseless.
The statement added that, “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.”
According to the release, the IG never said, “I’m free to have romantic affairs with Police women,” while also urging members of the public to disregard and discountenance the story in its entirety.
