Extension Of Service Of The IGP Was Strictly The Prerogative Of The President – Police

…….Says Sahara Reporters lied on IGP’S extension of service

The Police High Command has described as untrue, unfounded, defamatory and libelous, the publication by Sahara Reporters, dated February 07, 2021, which alleged that the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Muhammed Adamu paid over 2Billion Naira for the tenure extension.

In a press release signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, CP Frank Mba, he stated categorically that the extension of service of the IGP was strictly the prerogative of the President and was never paid for as maliciously reported in the publication.

“The said that the insinuations also by Sahara Reporters that the IGP did not “celebrate” his extension smacks of ignorance and a pathetic misplacement of priority. The extension does not call for merry-making or celebration but a time for more work, rededication to duty and selfless service to the nation, Mba said.

The Force spokesperson reiterated that the IGP, while assuring the nation of an unwavering commitment by the Force under his leadership, to improved service delivery, safety and security of the citizenry, enjoins members of the public to disregard and discountenance the publication by Sahara Reporters as evidently untrue and unfounded. The IGP is undistracted and the Force remains motivated and committed to delivering on its mandate, especially the task of neutralizing current and emerging internal security threats.

 Meanwhile, the IGP has directed his legal team to commence legal actions against the online publishers.
