Afegbua reports to Police Headquarters, withdraws suit against Media Houses



The Spokesperson for former Military President, General Ibrahim Babangida on Wednesday appeared at the Force Headquarter in Abuja.

Kassim Afegbua had been declared wanted a letter he issued on behalf of General Babangida on the of the nation.

Police Spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, had accused Afegbua of “making a false , injurious falsehood, defamation of character and for acts capable of inciting public disturbance throughout the country.”

Before reporting himself, Afegbua explains he is simply being a -abiding citizen by presenting himself to the police.

“When I was declared wanted on Channels TV and NTA, he (General Babangida) was the one who called me and said, ‘why are they declaring you wanted? Are you a criminal?’

“So, we laughed it. He ‘are you on the run, have they given you an invitation?’ I replied No.

“So, I am very much in touch with him, I am not doing anything out of the blues. I am here because I was declared wanted. I am not a criminal, I am not on the run. As a responsible Nigerian, I felt it was unwise on the part of the police to declare me wanted when I have not been invited,” he said.

He, however, explained he has withdrawn suit against the media but maintains suit filed against the General of Police and the Nigeria Police Force.

“I have withdrawn the suit filed against NTA and Channels, formally filed at the Federal High Court. And so, I am suing the IG of police and the police as it were, for infringing on my right and demeaning my person and maligning my reputation,” he said.
