Just in: FG files fraud charges against senator Misau

By Anthony Ogbonna

The Federal government of Nigeria, through the office of the Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, has filed two separate fraud charges against Senator Hamman Isa Misau representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District for making injurious statements against the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris.

Idris-Misau

Recall that Senator Misau had alleged that the IGP paid N2.5m to get special promotion and posting through the Police Service Commission (PSC).

He had equally accused the IGP of fraud and sexual misconduct and the Nigerian Senate had, sequel to that, agreed to launch an investigation into the allegation.

Howe ver, the police, in a response, had equally accused the Senator of absconding the force, a claim the Police Service Commission later disproved, maintaining that Senator Misau properly retired from the police force.

However, the senior state counsel, Mr. Aminu Akilu, in two separate charges, one being a seven count charge at the Federal High Court in Abuja and the other being a five-counts at the FCT High Court accused the senator of making injurious statements against the IGP.

The charge read thus:

“That you, lsah Hamman Misau of Hamman Misau Residence, Turaki Street, Misau, Bauchi State, on or about August 10, 2017, at Abuja and other part of Nigeria within the jurisdiction of this Honourable Court, did make a false statement of fact to wit: that police officers pay as much as two million, five hundred thousand naira (N2.5m) to get special promotion and posting through the Police Service Commission as published in the Daily Trust Newspaper dated August 10, 2 017, knowing that such false statement of fact would harm the reputation of Mr. Ibrahim Kpotun ldris (the serving Inspector-General of Police), the Nigeria Police Force and the Police Service Commission and you thereby committed an offense.
