IBB's Statement Saga: Nigeria Police Has Done The Needful - They Have Apologized For Declaring Me Wanted – Afegbua

Just three days after declaring former military president, Gen. Ibrahim Babangida's spokesperson, Kassim Afegbua wanted and his subsequent filing of a law suit to the tune of N1 billon against Nigeria Police for infringement of fundamental right, the Nigeria police has finally apologised for declaring him wanted.

The police through its Force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, said he was wanted 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“I have withdrawn Channels and NTA as respondents to the suit this morning,” he said, maintaining that Idris and Jimoh are the remaining respondents.
