Missau files subpoena for IGP to appear in court


Isah Missau, Senator representing (APC-Bauchi Central), has filed a subpoena to compel the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris to appear in court to testify on his behalf and also produce documents that will aid his defence.

Counsel to Missau, Joshua Musa argued that a defendant is entitled to every document and persons and materials needed to defend himself.

He also argued that the IGP is not listed as a defendant or prosecutor in the case and as such, there is no reason why he should not be invited.

The new Counsel to the Federal Government in the case, Alex Iziyon, who is also the IGP’s lawyer, said he had gotten a fiat from the Attorney General to prosecute on behalf of the government filed an application challenging the subpoena.

The trial Judge, Justice Ishaq Bello who is also the Chief Justice of the FCT Judiciary adjourned to the December 4 for argument in the subpoena.

Meanwhile, Iziyon says he would amend the five charges initially filed against Missau to seven charges.

The lawmaker is facing trial for allegedly bearing false witness against the Inspector General of Police.
