The Court Ruling on IG of Police

Court Sentences Inspector General of Police to Three Months in Prison for Contempt

What a call from these judges recently: "The Inspector General of Police, Usman Baba, has been sentenced to three months in prison for contempt of the court. The ruling was handed down by Justice Mobolaji Olajuwon on Tuesday, in response to a suit filed by Patrick Okoli, a former police officer who was unlawfully and compulsorily retired from the Nigerian police force in 1992, according to the affidavits supporting the suit."

May I add one request: do not send the IGP to Ovim Police Station for his 3 months cell-cation. Our plan is to become compliant to the law and make that station largely irrelevant. So, having the IGP shipped there will work against that target!
