Lawmaker denies deserting police

Senator Isah Hamman Misau yesterday told the police to address the corruption issues he raised and stop diverting attention.Misau, Chairman, Senate Committee on Navy, had earlier this month, claimed among others that police officers pay bribes to get favourable postings and promotions, an allegation disputed by the Force Spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, who said that Misau’s claims were unfounded and that he was only out to discredit the institution.

Jimoh further claimed that Misau deserted the Force and that he would soon be declared wanted to respond to a disciplinary committee set up to probe him.

But reacting to claims that he deserted the Force in a statement yesterday, Misau said he is not on the run and challenged the police authorities to address the issues he raised, rather than claiming that he deserted the force.
