Senator representing the Bauchi Central, Isah Misau, on Wednesday accused the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, of giving two Sports Utility Vehicles (SUVs) to the wife of the President, Aisha Buhari.
Misau made the when he appeared before the Senate Ad Hoc Committee on Investigation of Various Allegations Levelled Against the Police, the Inspector General of Police and the Police Service Commission.
According to him, details of how Idris gave Mrs. Buhari the two SUV were contained in the documents the police boss submitted to court in the suit instituted against him by the Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Mr. Abubakar Malami, on behalf of the Federal Government.
“I still have some contract papers that the IG himself submitted to the court, where the First Lady through her aide-de-camp requested a Toyota Hiace and a Sienna jeep.
“The same day that the ADC wrote, the IG minuted that she should be given two jeeps. And it is not part of the appropriation. If you look at the appropriation, there is nowhere they said the First Lady should be given two jeeps,” he said.
Asked to clarify who the “First Lady” was the lawmaker replied, “The letter came from the ADC to the wife of the President.
“The most unfortunate thing is that even in the letter, the ADC wrote that they wanted the vehicles for her private engagements; they wrote that they wanted Sienna and Hiace and the IG said they should be given two jeeps. And he supplied the document to the court.”
Misau also alleged that the current acting Commissioner of Police in Lagos, Imohimi Edgal, was posted to the state because he was a classmate to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.
