Kassim Afegbua: Police Apologized For Declaring Me Wanted Over IBB Statement by sharpden: 5:36pm On Feb 07, 2018
BARELY three days after declaring him wanted, the Nigeria Police has apologized to Kassim Afegbua, the spokesman of former military president, Ibrahim Babangida.

Afegbua was on Monday officially declared wanted.

The police through its Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, said he was wanted for wanted for for giving false statement.

On Wednesday Afegbua stormed the Force Headquarters with his lawyer, Kayode Ajulo.

Shortly after his release, Afegbua addressing journalists said, “Incidentally, it became a very fair discussion; the Police said there was a mix up somewhere, to have warranted me been declared wanted and they apologized.

“They said the Police are for the people, in a democracy, it is their responsibility to be there for the people, not to intimidate, not to harass me.

“That they didn’t intend to harass me, they didn’t intend to intimidate me, of course, you know we have a case in court, my lawyers will advise what steps we are going to take.”

Afegbua noted that he has excluded media houses he included in the litigation he filed against the hierarchy of the Police.

He had filed a suit before the Federal High Court in Abuja on Tuesday asking for N1bn as damages.

Those joined as respondents to the suit are the Nigeria Police Force, the IGP, the Force Public Relations Officer, Mr. Moshood Jimoh, the Nigerian Television Authority and the Channels Televisions Limited.

“I have withdrawn Channels and NTA as respondents to the suit this morning,” he said, maintaining that Idris and Jimoh are the remaining respondents.

I never understood why he previously included ChannelsTV and NTA as fellow respondents to his suit?

Is it a crime for a news station to report what the police force disclosed that Mr So So So is wanted by the police force? Or is he saying they shouldn't have reported what was factual news coming from the police HQ that they are declaring a certain man wanted? Or did the police ever deny that they declared him wanted as reported by those news stations?

His lawyer has suddenly grown some common sense and rightly revised the respondents to the suit as only the Police IG and the Force PRO.

This is the first time since 1999 that the police and IGP will meddle with politics, former IGP's are not really known, we just hear their name when appointed.

That said i dont think this Buhari-apc-police will stoop soo low to apologise to him cos to them they are the law and above the law, the minions just called him to pacify and laugh it off.

The IGP is not the problem but the head. You can't act against your boss or you get fired and set up. The IGP actions is the body language of the president
