Nigerian Police speaks on corruption allegations against IGP

The Nigerian Police Force has issued a press statement debunking fraud allegations and illegalities against the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.

In a release signed and sent to CRIMECHANNELS by Force Spokesperson DCP Frank MBA, the Nigerian Police described the allegations that went viral on social media on Monday as false, and malicious.

On Monday, an online publication read ‘Exclusive: How Nigeria’s Inspector-General of Police, Adamu, Illegally Raised Millions of Naira for Construction of Training School in Nasarawa’.

The Police explained that the training school in Nasarawa State was built with the support of the State Government and several corporate partners.

According to Mba, the insinuation that Mohammed Adamu sited the facility ‘in his hometown of Endehu in Nasarawa State’, was not true.

“For the avoidance of doubts, Endehu is not the hometown of IGP Adamu. He is, on the contrary, from Lafia,” he added.

Mba added that the police have “instructed its legal team to initiate legal actions against” the online publication over what it sees as “the defamatory and libelous components of the report.”
