The Intelligence Response Team, Force Headquarters of the Nigeria Police, on Tuesday, February 18, 2020, has arrested a 34-year old female teacher, Grace Ibrahim, for spreading false information that a policeman was involved in the kidnap of Kaduna doctor Philip Ataga’s wife and two children.

The wife was killed by the kidnappers.

In a post that went viral on the internet, Ibrahim had said one of the children had identified a neighbor, who is a policeman, as the person that ordered the shooting of their mother.

Ibrahim, who was paraded at the Force Headquarters, apologized for the viral message, saying she did not verify it before spreading it.

She regretted any damage the post may have done.
