The Inspector-General of Police Usman Baba has ordered the transfer of the police public relations officer of Katsina command, Gambo Isah, days after allegedly assaulting TTV journalist, Rukayyah Jibia.
In a move seen by insiders as punishment, Mr Isah, a chief superintendent of police, was was transferred to Zone 14 police headquarters in the same Katsina State.
The latest transfer/posting, dated May 25, 2023 and referenced CH.5360/FS/FHQ/ABJ/V.TIl/210, affects 15 police officers, with Mr Isa topping the list.
The company said in a statement on Friday that she was not their reporter, saying “any media organization, security agency, individual and corporate organization that engage her in whatever dealing do it at its own risk.”
But in a swift reaction to TTV’s claims, Ms Jibia posted her identity card and appointment letter, dated October 1, 2021 and signed by the founder/CEO of TTV, Ibrahim Makama.
