A Federal High Court in Abuja has dismissed a suit seeking the removal of the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Usman Baba.

Justice Omotoso said the plaintiff, who claimed to be a social crusader, had no jurisdiction in instituting the case under the guise of public interest.

The Judge noted that the plaintiff failed to establish having any peculiar or special interest over and above other Nigerians.
