The Nigeria Police Force on Sunday, 3rd September, 2023 affirmed that Mr. Chike Ibezim is in lawful custody. 
According to the Force spokesman, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi the report surrounding the detention of Mr Ibezim is malicious, adding, "contrary to speculations, we affirm that Mr. Chike is in lawful custody based on a court order, and his detention is in connection with a prima facie case of malicious publication, cyberbullying, and other related offences that are still under investigation by the Police". 
Adejobi stated further, "the arrest and detention of individuals are carried out in strict adherence to legal procedures and respect for individual rights. In this case, a court order was obtained following a thorough investigation, which established an indictment on Mr Chike, who has given useful information and is assisting the Police in the course of their investigation.

These actions can also have significant legal implications. It is the duty of the Nigeria Police Force to investigate such matters thoroughly and ensure that the rule of law is upheld.

We encourage responsible and lawful behaviour in all forms of communication, including online interactions, to maintain a harmonious and safe society".
