FG drags Senator Misau to court over corruption allegations against IGP Ibrahim Idris


The Federal Government through the office of the Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, on Tuesday filed two separate sets of charges against the Senator representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District, Isah Misau.

Senator Misau, a former police officer had accused the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris of corruption.

The Senator had alleged that some top officers pay millions of Naira to get special promotions from the IGP.

He also alleged that IGP Idris collects bribe from organisations where policemen are deployed to provide security.

After the allegations, the Police had declared him a deserter, an allegation he later proved false, after submitting his resignation letter.

 Recently, Misau also accused Idris of impregnating Policewomen and promoting them.

One of the charges was filed before the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory in Abuja.

The charge includes five counts of making “injurious falsehood” against IGP Idris and the Nigerian Police Force.
