The Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Jimoh Moshood has explained reasons behind the arrest of a project tracking officer at BudgIT Nigeria, Mr Moses Motoni. According to Mr Moshood Motoni was arrested by the police authorities for allegedly distorting public peace and order. He made this known on Wednesday while addressing the issue on Channels Television’s News Track.
“Moses Motoni is in police custody as we speak, and his bail condition is being perfected because the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris has directed that he should be released on bail. He was arrested not by SARS as is being circulated. He was not arrested by SARS, he was arrested by the police team who are investigating the case of incitement of public disturbance against him,” Moshood said.
His explanation comes days after the alleged brutality of SARS on citizens sparked national outrage.
