Adeyemi Issac (Interpretation)
“The only mistake that I have made before now was that I called myself a deputy commissioner of Police, I never for once called myself Inspector General of Police. It was just four times that I called myself Deputy Commissioner of Police, I didn’t collect anything from them.I’m not a Policeman”
