The Nigeria police force have reacted to the alleged forgery of the National Youth Service Corps, NYSC, exemption certificate by the Minister of Finance, Kemi Adeosun, stating reason why they cannot investigate the matter saying there is no formal complaint against her.
The Force spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, told newsmen yesterday in Abuja, that:
“There must be a complaint, either written or verbal to us. You must write to a divisional police station or the Commissioner of Police or to the Inspector-General of Police; we have not received any complaint, so we can’t investigate it (allegation of forgery),” Moshood, acting Deputy Commissioner of Police stated.
When asked if the media reports of the allegation were not sufficient for the police to initiate a probe, the spokesman said:
“I have not read the report of what you said was published in newspapers. As I said, we can’t investigate the allegations until there is a verbal or written complaint against her (the finance minister),” the police explained.
