The Nigeria Police has said the story credited to Punch Online; “I’m free to have romantic affair with any policewoman – IG” is untrue and unfounded, pure fabrications and a fake news.
In a press release by the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Jimoh Moshood, he said 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.
“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, CSP Jimoh said.
He further reiterated that IGP Idris 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 the statement concluded.
