Nigerian police has refuted an allegation made against the Inspector General of police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, on position of the organisation on romantic relationships among members.

Idris was alleged to have  said in a document submitted to the Senate Ad hoc committee, he was free to have  ‘romantic affairs with any policewoman’.

The Inspector General and the Nigerian Police Force deny the allegation.

In a statement by  Police Public Relations Officer, CSP JIMOH MOSHOOD,  the Nigeria Police denied the report and disassociated IG from the statement.

“What the IGP said in the document submitted to the Senate Ad hoc committee is that no law stops a Police Officer in Service to marry another Police Officer on an Officer cadre”, part of the statement read.

The statement reads,
I’m free to have romantic affairs with any policewoman

This statement credited to the Inspector General of Police is untrue and unfounded. 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 NPM, mni.

What the IGP said in the document submitted to the Senate Ad hoc committee is that no law stops a Police Officer in Service to marry another Police Officer on an Officer cadre. He never said I’m free to have romantic affairs. Members of the public are implored to disregard the story in its entirety. The Inspector General of Police is not distracted.
