The Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command has confirmed the arrest of a journalist Agba Jalingo based on a petition filed against him by one Elizabeth Frank Ayade.
This is contained in a statement on Saturday by the command’s Police Public Relation Officer, DSP Josephine Adeh.
“On Saturday, August 20th, 2022, Agba Jalingo was arrested by State CID operatives in response to a petition filed against him by one Elizabeth Frank Ayade.
“He was arrested over a false allegation, claiming that she paid one Mr. Pascal to write an examination for her at the law school.
“Upon the receipt of this petition, we went ahead to invite Mr. Agba Jalingo, but he refused to come, leaving the police no option but to secure an arrest warrant, which is why he was arrested in Lagos.
“The investigation is currently ongoing and the unraveled facts will be communicated subsequently,” the statement said.
