Peace Corps Demand For Inspector Of General’s Imprisonment

The Peace Corps of Nigeria wants the Federal High Court, Abuja, to commit the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris to be sent to prison for alleged disregard of court orders.

The corps in Form 48 on Contempt of Court filed on Wednesday prayed the court to jail Idris to serve as a deterrent to others in a position of authority.

This was based on the alleged refusal of the police to vacate the headquarters of the organisation which it sealed on February 28, during its official commissioning.
The suit was instituted by the National Commandant of the Corps, Dickson Akoh and 49 others.

Speaking to journalists, Akoh said that his organisation had been pushed to the wall hence the institution of the contempt charge against the police boss.

“The organisation has secured seven different judgments from different courts, all barring the police from arresting detaining, harassing or intimidating our officers in the course of their lawful duties,’’ he said.

Akoh said that his officers would not take laws into their hands but would continue to approach the court for intervention.
