IGP arrested my father and two others because I divorced his friend – Lady cries out
Nasiba, daughter of a former chairman of Peugeot Automobile Nigeria Limited, Sani Dauda, has accused the Inspector General of Police, IGP, of harassing her and her father because she divorced his friend and married someone else.
According to Nasiba who spoke to The Cable, the police boss has been harassing her because she refused to remain in a marriage with Abubakar Musa, her ex-husband, which has been legally dissolved.
She also revealed that she left the marriage with Musa, a childhood friend of the IGP, because of physical and emotional abuse.
Nasiba further stated that the police officer who came to harass her family couldn’t provide any warrant to arrest them.
“They came over to the house with no warrant but a petition they claim was from my ex-husband. In the petition, he accused my dad of taking me away from him and marrying me off to someone else illegally. But this is not true. The marriage was dissolved at the court, and I got the divorce certificate.
My ex-husband has chosen to humiliate me and my family. The IG sent five police vans to pick up my father, his lawyer and the judge that treated the case while he was praying in the mosque. They wanted to take me and my husband, but we weren’t around.
Prior to that, the commissioner of police, Ali Aji Janga ,called my father and told him the IG has asked him to arrest him based on a petition sent by my ex-husband that my father has married me off to another man while he’s still married to me. But the CP told my father that he has advised the IG that this not a criminal offence and should not be treated as such. The IG insisted and told him to act on his instructions. My father is still at the police station with no arrest warrant and no explanation.
I don’t know why the IG is making this a criminal offence. I know my ex-husband is a childhood friend of the IG and he was also instrumental in his appointment as IG, but if the IG wants him married, he should marry off his own daughters to him”, The Cable quoted Nasiba as saying.
