IGP Adamu’s Threat of Legal Action Against Sahara Reporters: A Tale of Double Standards or Dereliction of Duty?

Nigeria’s Inspector-General of Police, Muhammad Adamu continued to court to himself controversies, notwithstanding the circumstances surrounding his supposed retirement and eventual tenure extension, which is also followed by the trumped-up court cases hanging on his neck.

On Sunday February 7, 2021, SaharaReporters while quoting sources from the Force, reportedly told of how the IGP Paid Over 2 Billion for tenure extension and how unhappy the IGP was for getting only three months instead of a 1-year tenure extension promised him by those he purportedly lobbied. Two days later On February 9, 2021, Premium Times Newspapers on a follow-up, reported that; “IGP denied paying N2 billion for tenure extension”, adding that the IGP is preparing a suit against Sahara Reporters and Sowore again.

Recall that, on August 13, 2020, it was widely reported that Dr. Alex Izinyon (SAN) wrote a letter to Sahara Reporters and Omoyele Sowore threatening to sue Sahara Reporters and Sowore on behalf of the IGP for N10 Billion Naira over the Nasarawa State Police training school report by Sahara Reporters, asking Sahara Reporters and Sowore for retraction and apology

But wait a minute! Is the same IGP not prosecuting Dr. George Uboh, for an article published by Sahara Reporters in 2019 against Mr. Godwin Emefiele, the CBN Governor?

Earlier on July 5th to September 16, 2019, Dr. Uboh, Chairman George Uboh Whistleblowers Network (GUWN), was detained at Kuje prison for defamation of the character of Nigeria’s CBN governor Godwin Emefiele, which was premised on a letter Uboh wrote Emefiele with evidence attached captioned “Over $2.5 Billion USD Missing under your Watch”, asking Emefiele to return the funds to TSA.

Should the IGP have prosecuted Uboh on a matter published by Sahara Reporters and not Uboh regarding someone else (Emefiele) which IGP deemed defamatory? Evidently, no one in Sahara Reporters has been prosecuted for the countless publications on matters concerning the IGP himself that he deems defamatory enough to prosecute.

Could the ‘Bromance’ between the IGP and Emefiele be that formidable that the IGP chooses to love his neighbor more than himself by detaining Uboh for 78 days on a defamatory case concerning Emefiele as published on Sahara Reporters platform?

Also recall that, the letter Emefiele wrote to the IGP, the CBN governor Emefiele, fingered Sahara Reporters of suspectedly bugging his phone, but it was Dr. George Uboh who got arrested for it. See attached letter Emefiele wrote the IGP dated May 14, 2019.

Could this be a tale of a “Double Standard or Dereliction of Duty” Employed by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Muhammad Adamu, in Prosecuting George Uboh and Omoyele Sowore on Publications by Sahara Reporters, among others?

Why the double standards?
