In the image, Senator Elisha appeared to have visited IGP Adamu in an office with the duo engaging in a conversation in a relaxed manner.
It will be recalled that Elisha Abbo is the serving Adamawa Senator who physically assaulted a nursing mother at a sex toy shop in Abuja.
However, in its reaction to the photograph, the Nigeria Police say that the public should disregard disregard “the obviously mischievous intentions of the author of the post.”
The Police wondered why the photograph was coming out at a time Senator Elisha Abbo is under investigation. The statement noted that IGP Adamu, being a public servant, interacts with every Nigerian, regardless of “their status, political leaning, tribe or religion, etc in the course of discharging his duties as the number one Cop of the Nation.”
“Needless to state that the picture was taken in Governor El-Rufai’s office when the IGP paid the Governor a courtesy visit during a Security meeting with the Northern Traditional Rulers in Kaduna on April 30th, 2019”, the statement noted.
