No law stops me from having romantic affair with a policewoman – IGP

The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris has said no law stops just m from having a romantic affair or marrying a serving female police officer.

Idris said this while defending allegations against him by senator representing Bauchi Central, Isa Misau.

What happened:

What Idris said:

Idris challenged Misau to prove him otherwise in a defence he wrote to the Senate ad-hoc committee investigating the allegations against him, through his lawyer, Dr. Alex Iziyon (SAN).

  • He asked Misau to cite a law which states that he cannot have a romantic affair with a serving policewoman.
  • Idris recalled that Misau’s father married the lawmaker’s mother while in service.

Iziyon said, “This allegation is laughable and showed lack of understanding of the provisions of the Police Act and regulation.”

He said, “Until he brings such section of the Police Act, it will amount to discussing the Inspector-General of Police’s private life, which ordinarily should not have been entertained on the floor of the Senate.

“It might be appropriate to remind the senator, whose mother retired from the police as an Inspector of Police and a father who retired from the police as an Assistant Inspector-General of Police, that the Inspector-General of Police is a Moslem and, according to Islamic Law, can marry four wives provided he can love them equally.

“The senator also alleged that the Inspector-General of Police is in a relationship with one Corporal Amina whom he claimed was promoted from the rank of Corporal to an Assistant Superintendent of Police within 12 months.

“This allegation is false and the senator is under obligation to give the full particulars of the female police (officer), where she is serving and her duty post. It is not possible to promote a corporal to the rank of an ASP except the officer has attended an in-service cadet course.”
