The Deputy Commissioner of Police Frank Mba, who is the Force Public Relation Officer, has denied the falsehood that N2 billion was paid for the IGP Mohammed Adamu’s tenure to be extended. In his narration:
“The Police High Command has described as untrue, unfounded, defamatory and libelous, the publication dated February 07, 2021, which alleged that the IGP paid over 2 Billion Naira for the tenure extension.”
“The Force wishes to state categorically that the extension of service of the IGP was strictly the prerogative of the President and was never paid for as maliciously reported in the publication.
“The insinuations that the IGP did not “celebrate” his extension smacks of ignorance and misplacement of priority.
“The extension does not call for merry-making or celebration but a time for more work, rededication to duty and selfless service to the nation.”
