The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) have dismissed a report which alleged that the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu was involved in a multi-billion naira fraudulent scheme.
The spokesperson for the police, Franks Mba in a statement on Tuesday, August 4, described the entire report as false and misleading.
Mba faulted the claim that the police boss influenced the establishment of a police mobile training school in Endehu, his home town, noting that that the IGP's home town is in fact Lafia in Nasarawa state.
The spokesperson also denied the allegations that the IGP used his office to coerce mobile police commanders into generating millions of naira monthly through illegal means for the establishment of the institution.
Mba explained that the police mobile training school was constructed through corporate intervention and was never a personal project.
He said the police have instructed its legal team to take action against the originators of the defamatory report.
In another news report, photos and videos on social media indicate that Nigerian security agents used maximum force on peaceful protesters in the commercial city of Lagos and the country's capital, Abuja on Wednesday, August 5.
The protesters are members of Revolution Now, a group of young Nigerians calling for a change in the way Nigeria is being governed.
The group is led by a former presidential candidate and media entrepreneur, Omoyele Sowore.
“We are currently witnessing joint madness by the military, police and other security agencies as over 60 of our comrades have been arrested over peaceful #RevolutionNow protest. Abacha days are here once again," Deji Adeyanju,” one of the leaders of the group tweeted.
The situation was the same in Osogbo, the Osun state capital as officials of the Department of State Services (DSS) arrested Olawale Bakare and six other protesters around the Olaiya area of the city.
There are also similar protests in Calabar, Cross River state, Ibadan, Oyo state and Minaa, Niger state.
