The Nigeria Police Force has reiterated its unwavering commitment to upholding the rule of law in the Erisco Tomato matter, particularly emphasizing the potency and effectiveness of the Cybercrime (Prohibition, Prevention, etc) Act, 2015.

Mrs. Chioma’s involvement in the case has prompted a thorough scrutiny, with accusations of violating key sections of the Cybercrime Act. Preliminary investigations have revealed compelling evidence pointing towards Mrs. Chioma’s alleged role in the breach of cyber laws, specifically those pertaining to the appropriate use of cyberspace.

In a press release, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the Force Public Relations Officer, cautioned the public against spreading misinformation and manipulating public sentiment. Emphasizing the impartial nature of the law, Adejobi warned that any attempts to subvert it would face the full force of legal action.

The recent developments in the case, including the utilization of crowdfunding to influence legal proceedings, raised concerns as they were deemed to undermine the integrity of the justice system and threaten principles of fairness and accountability. The release highlighted the necessity of enforcing existing legislation, especially the Cybercrime Act, to combat violations and the spread of misinformation on social media.

Adejobi reaffirmed the Nigeria Police’s dedication to enforcing laws without fear, favor, or sentiments, emphasizing justice and transparency for all citizens. The suspect was advised to cease evading court appearances, allowing justice to unfold. Adejobi also admonished Nigerians, particularly social media influencers, to embrace the rule of law and abstain from displaying sentiments in this case and others.

The Nigeria Police remains resolute in its commitment, undeterred by attempts to pervert justice, as expressed by ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, mnipr, mipra, fCAI, Force Public Relations Officer, in the official statement from Force Headquarters, Abuja, dated March 7, 2024.
