IGP files motion to set aside contempt proceedings, communal order



Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba

The Inspector-General of Police(IGP), Usman Baba, has approached the Court to file a motion to set aside the contempt proceeding and committal order issued by the Federal High Court, sitting in Abuja, last Tuesday.
The motion is coming after the Federal High Court sentenced the IGP, to three months in prison for flouting a 2011 court order.
Alkali’s committal followed a suit filed by a police officer, Patrick Okoli, who was unlawfully and compulsorily retired from the Nigerian Police Force.
Force public relations officer Olumiyiwa Adejobi, who made this known, said in the motion filed before the Federal High Court in the Federal Capital Territory(FCT), Thursday, the IGP extensively highlighted grounds why the orders should be set aside, noting that he had not been appointed into office as Inspector-General of Police when the case was instituted and the reinstatement order in question granted.
The IGP, also affirmed that the contempt proceedings were served via substituted means in November 2018 and January, 2019 respectively, on the then Inspector-General of Police, and not on him as the incumbent.


Adejobi in the statement said “The IGP in his disposition further noted that even before his assumption of Office, official steps had been taken by his predecessors toward complying with the reinstatement of Patrick C. Okoli, the plaintiff, as ordered by the Court. As noted by him, this was evidenced by an official letter addressed to the Police Service Commission on the approval of the then Inspector General of Police, as far back as 2015, and before the court order of November 29th, 2022, requesting the Commission to issue a reinstatement letter to the plaintiff and also effect his promotion in line with the order of the Court and in the exercise of their statutory authority in that regard. Hence, the grounds for the contempt proceedings ought not to have existed, ab initio.
The IGP reassures Nigerians of his unalloyed commitment and steadfastness in defending the rule of law and respecting judicial authorities and hence, will not wittingly or unwittingly disobey any order validly granted by courts of competent jurisdiction”.

Policemen Slap, ‘Strip’ Bus Driver in Lagos



Policemen in scuffle with bus driver

The source, who asked not to be named, said she was working when the incident happened.

She said she peeked out of her window and saw policemen dragging a commercial bus driver out of his vehicle, tugging his clothes, and slapping him continuously before pinning him to the floor. She said his clothes came off during the scuffle, and he was stark naked.

Speaking to FIJ, the source said, “I was just working when I heard noise outside. When I looked out, I saw policemen dragging one bus driver and slapping him anyhow.

“They dragged his clothes off and were dragging him to their vehicle but he kept shouting that he had not done anything. Later, they pinned him to the ground and stepped on him.”

The source sent FIJ some pictures she had taken of the scene, but when FIJ called Benjamin Hundeyin, spokesman for the Lagos Police Command, he told FIJ the narrative was “impossible.”


Hundeyin said, “No police officer will strip anyone naked, especially in broad daylight. Maybe in the night, but I can vow that it is impossible. You know how this bus drivers are. When you want to arrest them, they pull all sorts of gimmicks, go naked and start creating a scene.”

After he spoke with FIJ, our reporter sent him a video of a policeman holding the unnamed bus driver by his knicker and pinning him to a police van. An armed policeman is in front of them, and moments after, a third policeman walks up to them and deals slaps directly to the face of the unarmed civilian.

When FIJ asked Hundeyin if it was common practice for the police to slap civilians in a bid to restrain them, he described the question as ridiculous and patronising, and wanted to be asked instead what the force would do to errant officers who assault civilians.

However, when FIJ asked what actions the force would take, Hundeyin went silent.

As of press time, FIJ had not ascertained what division the officers were attached to, but Hundeyin told this reporter he had contacted their DPO and would follow up the matter.
