IGP impregnated junior policewoman – Senator Misau

Senator Isah Misau

Senator Isah Misau, representing Bauchi Central, has accused the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, of impregnating a junior policewoman in contravention of service rules.

Misau, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC), said this on the Senate floor on Wednesday, adding that the police boss recently married the woman involved.

The lawmaker also accused Idris of awarding special promotions to female officers and “his boys”, as well as collecting more than N500,000 for officers who want to get promoted.

“The IG is openly having sexual relationships with two policewomen which he gave special promotion,” Misau declared.

He continued: “One of them is Amina and one of them is DSP Asta which the IG on 15th of last month got married to that woman DSP. Under police act and regulation, you cannot marry as serving woman police unless that woman retires.

“He quickly did a secret wedding in Kaduna because the lady is four months pregnant. I am saying this because of the institution – that institution I am supposed to be a stakeholder in that institution. It is the institution that brought me here which I’m proud of.”

Misau stated that the police boss has not made any meaningful contribution to the force since his appointment.

“Sometimes I laugh when I see the IG celebrating that he has arrested Evans, Evans was operating in Lagos openly until when he kidnapped somebody who jumped into somebody’s house and went to report. This is an achievement of IG? This cannot be achievement of the IG. Even an ordinary person can do that,” he said.

The lawmaker had recently alleged that Idris was collecting N120bn annually from corporate organisations and “very important personalities” for security services, an allegation he made again on the floor of the Senate on Wednesday.

Misau urged the upper legislative chamber to set up and ad hoc committee to investigate his allegations against Idris, saying that he would provide documentary evidence before the panel.

President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, approved the setting up of an eight-man committee to investigate the allegations.

Deputy Chief Whip, Sen. Francis Alimikhena, is the chairman of the committee whose other members include Joshua Lidani (PDP-Gombe), Binta Masi (APC-Adamawa) and Duro Faseyi (PDP-Ekiti), Nelson Effiong (APC-Akwa Ibom), Obinna Ogba (PDP-Ebonyi), Abdul-Aziz Nyako (APC-Adamawa) and Suleiman Hunkuyi (APC-Kaduna).
