Men of the Nigerian Police Force has quizzed a lady identified as Chinyere Igwegbe for giving false information on former Imo state governor, Ikedi Ohakim and one Chinedu Okpaleke.

This news platform learned that the police arrested her inside the premises of the Federal High Court in Abuja on Thursday shortly after a court session on a case she filed against Ohakim and Okpaleke.
In the charge signed by Matthew Omasun and Rotshang Dimka, the police arrested Igwegbe on a four-count charge bordering on false information with the intention to defame the defendants.
In count one of the charges, the police said, “that you Chinyere Amuchienwa Igwegbe (f) of 7b Emeida Estate Apo, Abuja, FCT, on or about August 14, 2020, within the jurisdiction of this honourable court did furnish police authorities with false information and via allegations in a petition by your solicitors, Agala and Agala chambers to a public servant against (1) Dr. Ikedi Ohakim (2) Chinedu Okpareke on allegations of criminal conspiracy, criminal intimidation, defamation of character, attempted kidnapping and threat to life punishment with imprisonment, which could not be substantiated and thereby committed an offence punishable under section 140 of the penal code laws of Northern Nigeria.”
In count two, she was accused of giving false information via allegations in a petition against Dr. Ikedi Ohakim that she paid him the sum of N5 million for the purchase of a land in Lagos during the 2019 election, an allegations which could not be substantiated.
In count three, she was accused of intentionally exposing “her genital organs and intentionally causing distress to other parties and did so with a selfie video with intention of deriving sexual pleasure from such act”.
