The Nigerian Police Force on Tuesday reacted to the allegations of corruption and illegalities against the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.
The Police Force while speaking on the allegations levelled against its principal described it as false.
An online publication on Monday read ‘Exclusive: How Nigeria’s Inspector-General of Police, Adamu, Illegally Raised Millions of Naira for Construction of Training School in Nasarawa’.
The police in a statement released through its spokesman, Frank Mba, on Tuesday noted that the training school in Nasarawa was built with the support of the State Government and several corporate partners.
He further stated that the belief that the IGP built the training school in his hometown of Endehu in Nasarawa State’, is not true.
“For the avoidance of doubts, Endehu is not the hometown of IGP Adamu. He is, on the contrary, from Lafia,” he added.
Mba added that the police have “instructed its legal team to initiate legal actions against” the online publication over what it sees as “the defamatory and libellous components of the report.”
