I’m free to have romantic affair with any policewoman – Inspector-General of Police | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper

The Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, has said that there is no law that prevents him from marrying a serving female police officer.


He challenged the lawmaker representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District, Senator Isa Misau, who accused him of having an affair with a junior female colleague, to prove him otherwise.

Idris stated this in a written defence he presented through his lawyer, Dr. Alex Iziyon (SAN), to the Senate ad-hoc committee investigating the allegations against him by the senator.

Our source obtained a copy of the written defence, in which the allegations against the IG were listed in six categories and responded to.

He specifically asked the senator to cite a section of the law that prevents him from having romantic relationship with a policewoman.

The police boss recalled that Misau’s father married the lawmaker’s mother while in service.

On the allegation that Idris was having affairs with two female officers who also got questionable promotions as a result, Iziyon said, “This allegation is laughable and showed lack of understanding of the provisions of the Police Act and regulation.”

The Inspector-General of Police challenged the senator to cite the section of the Police Act and Regulation which forbids a police officer from marrying another police officer.

He said, “Until he brings such section of the Police Act, it will amount to discussing the Inspector-General of Police’s private life, which ordinarily should not have been entertained on the floor of the Senate.

“It might be appropriate to remind the senator, whose mother retired from the police as an Inspector of Police and a father who retired from the police as an Assistant Inspector-General of Police, that the Inspector-General of Police is a Moslem and, according to Islamic Law, can marry four wives provided he can love them equally.

“The senator also alleged that the Inspector-General of Police is in a relationship with one Corporal Amina whom he claimed was promoted from the rank of Corporal to an Assistant Superintendent of Police within 12 months.

“This allegation is false and the senator is under obligation to give the full particulars of the female police (officer), where she is serving and her duty post. It is not possible to promote a corporal to the rank of an ASP except the officer has attended an in-service cadet course.”

The IG, who earlier declined the committee’s invitation due to pending court cases over the matter, appeared before the Senate panel on Wednesday, accompanied by Iziyon; and the Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang.

It can be recalled that the Nigerian police force was ranked as the worst in the world by the  International Police Association and the Institute for Economics and Peace

  1. Ibrahim Idris, does the Police Act state that female police women should be given questionable promotions? It's a huge shame that it's under your watch that the Nigerian police was ranked the worst in the world. Isn't that worrisome to you? You should resign immediately. That's what people with conscience would do in other parts of the world.

  5. You see how religion will be employed to cover for crime. Islam allows Muslim to marry four wives,so any act of promiscuity can be covered. Are you sure you wanted to marry them? We shall see when you will pay the dowry. Wishing you happy married life in advance

  7. So Misau's father also was guilty and Misau was born out of corrupt affair.

  8. Misau's father could have been guilty but we can't be living in the past. Do we say because a "crime" was committed in past, therefore it's legitimate for anybody to it right now? It's a bad fallacy for Ibrahim Idris to cite Misau's father's case as an excuse for his action.
