Stop media comments against IGP, court cautions Misau


Ade Adesomoju, Abuja

The High Court at the Federal Capital Territory, Maitama, Abuja, on Monday cautioned the Senator representing the Bauchi Central Senatorial District, Isah Misau, against making further comments in the media on issues bordering on the charges for which he was being prosecuted.

The Federal Government on Monday re-arraigned the senator before the court on amended charges of spreading malicious falsehood of corruption and unethical practices against the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, and others.

After Misau pleaded not guilty to the amended charges on Monday, the lead prosecuting counsel, Dr Alex Izinyon (SAN), urged the court to issue “a caveat” to the defendant on the need to be “circumspect” in further making comments on the subject of the charges in the media.

“If that happens, I will come formally before this court,” Izinyon said.
