A case of dog biting dog has been established with the detention, harassment and embarrassment by police, of its external Public Relations specialist, Malam Yushau Shuaib and his wife.
Shuaib, in protest, has written a 30-paragraph petition to the Inspector General of Police, Idris Ahmed, complaining of police harassment and intimidation of his family members living in Abuja, “especially the Gestapo style his family members were subjected to by a team of Policemen and woman from Lagos.”
Shuaib wrote: “The ridiculous treatment of myself and my wife with the detention in Wuye Police Station (Abuja) before our eventual release is not only appalling and scandalous but a calculated attempt to rubbish our hard-earned reputation, having used the last five years protecting and promoting the activities of security agencies in Nigeria.
“In fact, through PRNigeria Platform alone, we have syndicated and published over 300 official Press Releases from the Police in the last two years of the current administration as part of our social responsibility to our fatherland.”
