In a significant legal ruling, the Federal High Court in Abuja issued a three-month prison sentence to the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, on Tuesday. This ruling was based on the grounds of his non-compliance with a duly issued and valid court order.

Justice M. O. Olajuwon, in the delivered ruling, mandated the imprisonment of the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba, for a duration of three months.

This decision asserts that the IGP is to remain in custody until compliance with a court order issued on October 21, 2011, is achieved.

Justice M. O. Olajuwon rendered this verdict in response to a legal action initiated by Patrick Okoli, a former police officer. Okoli alleged that he faced unjust and mandatory retirement from the Nigerian police force, prompting the court’s ruling.
