The Office of the Attorney General of the Federation has charged Senator Hamman Isa Misau with making injurious information against the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris.

Two separate charges, a seven count charge at the Federal High Court in Abuja and a five-counts at the FCT High Court were recently filed by senior state counsel, Aminu Akilu.

Senator Misau, representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District, had claimed that police officers paid N2.5m to get special promotion and posting through the Police Service Commission (PSC) among others.

In the charge before the Federal High Court, the senator was accused of making false documents comprising affidavits, statutory declaration of age deposed to at FCT High Court and the Bauchi State Health Management Board Birth Certificate, which he allegedly submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in 2011 and 2014.

The charges read further:
