The Police have revealed that no law stops an officer in service from marrying another police personnel on officer cadre.

The Police Headquarters disclosed this on Sunday following a report credited to the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris that he was free to have romantic affair with any policewoman.

There are three cadres in the Force: Rank and File cadre where constable to sergeant falls, Inspectorate cadre where the Inspectors fall and officers cadre.

The Force Spokesman CSP Jimoh Moshood, in a statement released in Abuja yesterday, described the report credited to the IG as untrue and misleading.

Moshood said: “What the IGP said in the document submitted to the Senate Ad-hoc Committee investigating the spurious allegation against the IG is that no law stops a police officer in service to marry another police officer on an officer cadre.

“He never said I’m free to have romantic affairs with police women,” he said.
