IGP Harassing My Family Because I Left His Childhood Friend – Woman Cries
A woman has cried out over harassment from the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.
Nasiba, the daughter of a former Chairman of Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited, Sani Dauda alleged that the police is harassing her family.
TheCable reports on Tuesday that IGP Adamu was targetting her family over her refusal to remain married to his friend, Abubakar Musa.
She said her ex-husband is a childhood friend of the Inspector General of Police.
Nasiba said he decided to speak out now that the police is harassing her father and elder brother for no just cause.
She claimed that the police who reportedly acted on the instruction of the IGP arrested her family without producing any warrant to effect the arrest.
“They came over to the house with no warrant but a petition they claim was from my ex-husband,” she said.
“In the petition, he accused my dad of taking me away from him and marrying me off to someone else illegally. But this is not true. The marriage was dissolved at the court, and I got the divorce certificate.
“My ex-husband has chosen to humiliate me and my family. The IG sent five police vans to pick up my father, his lawyer and the judge that treated the case while he was praying in the mosque. They wanted to take me and my husband, but we weren’t around.
“Prior to that, the commissioner of police, Ali Aji Janga, called my father and told him the IG has asked him to arrest him based on a petition sent by my ex-husband that my father married me off to another man while he’s still married to me. But the CP told my father that he has advised the IG that this not a criminal offence and should not be treated as such. The IG insisted and told him to act on his instructions. My father is still at the police station with no arrest warrant and no explanation.”
On why she left her husband, Nasiba said she took the decision because of constant physical and emotional abuse from her ex-husband.
“I don’t know why the IG is making this a criminal offence. I know my ex-husband is a childhood friend of the IG and he was also instrumental in his appointment as IG, but if the IG wants him married, he should marry off his own daughters to him,” she said.
She cried that the police was still holding her father and others at the Special anti robbery squad (SARS) office in Kaduna State.
Meanwhile, TheCable reports that the Police Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba has promised to investigate the allegation.
The spokesman to the Kaduna Police Command Yakubu Sabo said he said he was currently at a training outside the state.
