As the fate of the Commandant of the Ikeja Police College, Mr. Irimiya Yerima, hangs in the balance over what the Presidency described as negative image given to Nigeria by the exposure of the rot in the college to the world, human rights lawyer, Femi Falana, yesterday threatened to tackle the Presidency if Yerima was dismissed over no fault of his.Information Nigeria gathers that the feeling within the Presidency is that it was the commandant that gave unrestricted access to ChannelsTV to record the footage and beam it to the world so as to embarrass the Federal Government – this much the president revealed during his unscheduled visit to the college last Friday.

Shedding more light, Falana said that the police commissioner did not commit any offence to warrant being sacked from his duty post by the Presidency.

Falana said: “If Jonathan dismisses Yerima, I will go to court to challenge him and I will defend the CP free of charge because he has not committed any offence.

“Under the Freedom of Information Act, it would have been an offence for anyone to stop Channels Television from filming the college and we have no evidence it was Yerima who gave them access to do so.”
