Police image maker, Dolapo Badmus, denies fake news

The Zonal Image maker of the Nigeria Police, Zone 2 Command, Dolapo Badmus has refuted a report credited to her that “men can sue women who refuse to come to their house after sending transport fare.

The said report by Dolapo Badmus alleged that she said such lawsuit is backed by Act 29:Section 132 of the criminal code and can attract a 5-year imprisonment sentence.

The statement earlier attributed to the PRO reads; “Dear men, If a lady tells you to send her money for transport to come over and you send her the cash and she decides not to visit you and does not refund the money. You can refer to act 29 SECTION 132 of the criminal code; file a case of defrauding by false pretence against her. She can be jailed for up to 5 years. Know your rights, my brother.”

However in an Instagram post on Sunday, February 2; Badmus dissociated herself from the report and further described it as a “false statement”. 

She wrote;

Disclaimer!!! My attention has been drawn to this false statement circulating purportedly from me! I did not at any point make this statement and in my usual character, if I have made it I will stand by it but never at any point have I made such! I hereby disassociate myself from it! Thank you.
