IGP: Order Sentencing Baba To Three-Month Jail Term Vacated By Court

The order sentencing the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Usman Alkali Baba, has been set aside by a Federal High Court in Abuja.

Baba was sentenced in November for disobeying a court order but in a fresh ruling on Wednesday, Justice Bolaji Olajuwon stated that there was evidence before the court that the IGP had substantially complied with the court’s earlier order directing the reinstatement of Patrick Okoli, who was compulsorily retired as a police officer.

The judge agreed with the submission of counsel to the I-G, Simon Lough (SAN) praying the court to void the November 29 committal order.

Olajuwon consequently declared that in view of the development, the application by Baba “is worthy of sympathetic consideration.”

“In view of the substantial compliance with the order of the court and the assurance of ensuring full compliance, the order committing the applicant, Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, is hereby set aside", she said.
