IGP, Ibrahim Idris In Retirement Date Falsification Scandal

Senator Isah Hamman Misau on Wednesday disclosed to the Senate that the Inspector General of Police(IGP), Ibrahim Idris, falsified his retirement date.

Misau made this disclosure when he appeared before the Senate eight-member Ad hoc Committee probing earlier allegations he made against the IGP.

He also told the Committee that the Police chief purchased two Prado Sports Utility Vehicles(SUVs) for the wife of the President, Mrs Aisha Buhari, for her personal use.

According to him, the First Lady had requested through her Aide-de-Camp (ADC )for a Sienna and Hiace bus, but the IGP instead of the cars that were requested bought two Prado jeeps for the First Lady, which were not budgeted for.

On the IGP’s alleged age manipulation, the lawmaker said that the expected date of retirement of the IGP was fraudulently doctored on the Staff List of Senior Police Officers from January 3 to January 15, 2019.

He said: “The Inspector- General of Police gave the First Lady, wife of the President two Jeeps and this came through a letter from the ADC of the First Lady, who requested on her behalf that she needed a Sienna and Hiace for personal use. But she was given the two jeeps for her private use.”

Meanwhile, Alimikhena, disclosed that the Inspector- General of Police, would appear before the Committee next week for his own side of the story.

Narrating his story to the Committee, Misau said: “Sometime in July 2017, I was in the office of Senator Baba Kaka, Chairman, Senate Committee on Rules and Business, when a Daily Trust Reporter sought my views on the information that policemen pay as much as N500,000 for Special Promotion.

“To verify this information, I called some serving police officers, who confirmed to the three of us that the information was not only true, but that the amounts paid are up to N2,500,000, in addition to other information.

“I hereby forward for your consideration, the detailed terms of allegation against the Police, the Inspector General of Police, and the Police Service Commission: Deployment of Policemen to Private Organisation.”
