The police have paraded a man suspected to be the informant in the search of the home of elder statesmen, Edwin Clark, in Abuja.
Force Public Relations Officer, Mr Jimoh Moshood, paraded the suspect identified as Ismail Yakubu on Wednesday at the Police Headquarters in the nation’s capital.
Moshood said Yakubu is from Waru village in the Apo district of the Federal Capital Territory.
He also revealed the names of the four police personnel allegedly involved in the raid of Clark’s residence in Asokoro on Tuesday.
They are David Dominic, who is alleged to have led the team in the search, as well as Godwin Musa, Sada Abubakar and Yabo Paul.
The police spokesman disclosed that Dominic has been queried while the three others were undergoing orderly trial for the appropriate punishment to be meted out on them.
He also said Yakubu would be arraigned in court for giving false information and telling a falsehood to mislead police action.
He explained that the police receive information from members of the public on daily basis and were promptly used to prevent and detect crimes and criminalities in the country.
Moshood, however, warned that “the Force will not condone misconducts by any of its personnel that can run contrary to the rule of law.”
Moshood had said that the Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, was not aware and did not order the raid.
The police, thereafter, sent a delegation of top officers to visit Clark and apologise for the incident.
