ILORIN — Personal Assistant on Political Matters to Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed, Olalekan Alabi, has filed an application before a Kwara State High Court sitting in Ilorin, seeking to commence committal proceedings against the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, for contempt of court.

Mr Alabi approached the court through his counsel, Adebayo Adelodun, to effect the service of Form 49, which is a notice of committal to prison on the IGP for disobeying court order directing his release from police custody.

The service of Form 49 on the IGP means that he will be summoned by the court to show cause why he should not be committed to prison for having disobeyed the order of court to release Alabi.

Mr Alabi has been in police custody in Abuja since May 30, following his arrest over his alleged link with Offa banks robbery suspects.
