The Inspector General of Police-IGP, Ibrahim Idris, has instituted a 5 billion naira defamation suit against Senator Isah Misau, who he said raised sundry corruption allegations against him in the media.
The IGP, in the suit he filed before the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, insisted that Misua who is representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District, greatly tarnished his public image.
The IGP told the court that Misau had in a news report entitled “Police Officers pay bribe for special promotion”, published in a print media outfit on August 10, had also accused him of collecting 120 billion naira from oil firms.
Idris stressed that the lawmaker had accused him of perpetuating bribery and corruption in the Nigerian Police Force and as such was tantamount to tarnishing his image in the public.
