IG set to re-marry

28 August 2013, 17:53

Abuja - The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Abubakar, is set to re-marry, one year after the death of his wife, Maryram, the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports.

CSP Frank Mba, the spokesman for the force, who confirmed the story, told NAN in Abuja on Wednesday that the wedding has been tentatively fixed for Sept. 14.

Mba, however, said the confirmation was not an invitation to the public as the intended wedding was the private affair of the IGP.

"I want to appeal to the media to respect the privacy of the intending couple.

"We must all remember that that there is a line between Mohammed Abubkar as a private citizen of Nigeria and the office of the Inspector General of Police.

"As much as possible, we urge the media to respect the privacy of his life and strike a very good balance between his quest for legitimate public interest and information’’, Mba said.

It will be recalled that Maryam died in January 2012 shortly after Abubakar assumed office in acting capacity.
