The Federal Government has on Tuesday opened a lawsuit against Isah Hamman Misau, the Senator representing Bauchi Central in the National Assembly, for allegedly making “injurious falsehood”.


The lawsuit, which was filed at the Federal Court Abuja, is the latest development in the saga between the Senator and the  Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris. Recall also that the Senator had in a submission to the Senate alleged that the IGP contravene the Police Act by engaging in sexual relationships with serving officers of the force and even got married to one them simply identified as Asta. Asta’s family had also threatened a lawsuit for character defamation.

Misau has been at loggerheads with Idris who he accused, among others, of engaging in corrupt practices. The police boss had also described Misau as a deserter, who is wanted by the Police.
