"People in the Presidency and Senators close to the Presidency have been calling the IG to release him.

When contacted, president spokesman, Garba Shehu, however, declined comments on the matter.

Similarly, Police spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, was not available for comments on the matter as calls placed to his cellphone were unsuccessful.
