Court threatens to jail IGP, Idris over alleged contempt

A High Court sitting in Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, presided over by Justice Ibrahim Yusuf has threatened to imprison the Inspector General of Police, Mr Idris Ibrahim, for alleged contempt.

The IGP was alleged to have disobeyed the order of the court to release Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed’s Personal Assistant on Political Matters, Mr Olalekan Alabi.

The threat was contained in a Notice of Consequences of Disobedience of Order of Court (Form 48) dated 10 August, 2018.

The order, which was made available to journalists in Ilorin, on Thursday, was signed by the Registrar of the Court and addressed to the IG, Force Headquarters, Abuja.

Yusuf said, “Take notice that unless you obey the directions contained in the order of the High Court of Justice of Kwara State delivered on the 1st of August, 2018, you will be guilty of contempt of court and will be liable to be committed to prison.”
