According to him, Ogundipe was arrested on completion of preliminary investigation and would be arraigned in a court of competent jurisdiction in the FCT in less than 24 hours. The spokesman said that Ogundipe was remanded in police custody and the case was adjourned to Aug. 20.

“The Nigeria Police force as a law abiding organisation will continue to ensure that the Rule of Law and its supremacy which are essentials of democracy prevails at all times,” he said. Moshood stressed that individual or group of persons who violate the law must be brought to justice.

The spokesman harped that the force would also ensure that all Nigerians irrespective of profession, practice or carrier are subject to the same Law.

“Every concerned group(s) or interested person(s) should be aware that the matter is in court and the due process of law is being followed.

“The Nigeria police force and the media are veritable partners in ensuring peace, law and order in the country, but it will not compromise or allow an offender to go scot free or pervert the course of justice.

“However, the Force is constrained by the Law to allow justice to take its course and rule of law to prevail in this case,” he said.

He assured all law abiding Nigerians, respected media practitioners and other members of the public of a guaranteed freedom of expression as enshrined in the 1999 Constitution as amended.
