[The Activism Blog] Civil society coalition call for immediate probe of the IGP

It’s not yet uhuru for Nigeria’s Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr Ibrahim Idris and may not happen anytime soon.

While he is still battling with the plethora of allegations being levelled against him by Senator Isah Misau, a coalition of Civil Society Organisations under the aegis of The Coalition of Civil Society Groups for Justice and Equity (COALITION- JE) says the inspector-general of police (IGP) no longer serves the interest of Nigeria.

The group based its submission on the exposé made by the senator and the Peace Corps headquarters that is illegally occupied by the Police.

The inspector-general in an act of deviance has gotten the attorney general of the federation to drag the senator to court while he is yet to answer any questions on the allegations.

The federal government is playing a frustrating role in this whole matter despite the noise of the regime’s anti-corruption campaign. In a sane society, the IG should have stepped aside for independent investigation but he has chosen to use his contacts in government to drag the senator to court.

That the federal government is involved in the matter has made a mess of the whole issue.

This latest call by the The Coalition of Civil Society Groups for Justice and Equity (COALITION- JE) should serve as a wake up call to the federal government to address the IG issue once and for all.
