NPF: an officer is permitted to marry another officer

The Police have said no law stops an officer in service from marrying another police personnel on officer cadre. 

The reaction came following a report credited to Inspector-General (IG) Ibrahim Idris claiming that he was free to have romantic affair with any policewoman.

There are three cadres in the Force: Rank and File cadre where constable to sergeant falls, Inspectorate cadre where the Inspectors fall and officers cadre.

Police personnel from the rank of an Assistant Superintendent of Police up to Inspector-General of Police fall under officer’s cadre.

The Force Spokesman CSP Jimoh Moshood, in a statement in Abuja yesterday, described the report credited to the IG as untrue and misleading.

Moshood said: “What the IGP said in the document submitted to the Senate Ad-hoc Committee investigating the spurious allegation against the IG is that no law stops a police officer in service to marry another police officer on an officer cadre.

“He never said I’m free to have romantic affairs with police women,” he said.
