The Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba has denied issuing any arrest order on any particular person involved in the attack on Policemen, or the disturbance of public peace, at the premises of the National Assembly, Abuja on Thursday.
This is even as he condemned in very strong terms the killing of a Police Inspector as well as what he called the unwarranted shooting and attack and injuries inflicted on five Police Officers that were providing security at a political rally in Oke Ado area of Ibadan, Oyo State.
Abba in a statement issued by the Police Public Relations Officer, Acting Commissioner of Police (CP) Emmanuel Ojukwu, explained that invitation for questioning of persons involved in the National Assembly invasion lies with the investigating Police Officers to determine who to invite, quiz and prosecute as the case may be.
The IGP while ordering a thorough investigation into the shooting incident and the attendant death of a service personnel, reiterated his warning to political actors to desist from the use of thugs in pursuing their agenda.
Abba also reaffirmed the resolve and determination of the Nigeria Police to provide a safe and secure corridor for all political competitors, stressing that offenders of the Electoral Act will face the full wrath of the law.
