Irresponsibility of top officials of the present government has again been blown open by Hon. Senator of the Federal Republic, Mr. Isah Misau, representing Bauchi Central. The Senator wants the legislature to look into the brazen activities of the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Ibrahim Idris, who he accused of impregnating a junior policewoman in the country, which he said is in contravention of service rules.
Misau, a member of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), said this on the Senate floor on yesterday Wednesday (September 4, 2017), adding that the police boss recently married the junior police woman involved in the illicit affairs just to cover up his tracks.
The brave Senator also accused Idris of awarding special promotions to a barrage of female officers he is having flings with as well as those he tagged “his boys,” in flagrant abuse of office. He also disclosed that the IGP was collecting more than N500, 000 from policemen and officers who want to get promoted to the next rank.
He said, “The IG is openly having sexual relationships with two policewomen, which he gave special promotion. One of them is Amina and one of them is DSP Esther, which the IG on 15th of last month (September) 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 am proud of.”
The Senator further alleged that the police boss has not made any meaningful contribution to the force since his appointment. Hear him, “Sometimes I laugh when I see the IG celebrating that he has arrested Evans (the high-profile kidnap kingpin). 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.
Senator Misau had recently alleged that Idris was collecting N120bn annually from corporate organisations and “very important personalities” for the provision of security services, an allegation he repeated again on the floor of the Senate on Wednesday. He therefore urged the upper legislative chamber to set up an ad hoc committee to investigate these grave allegations against Idris, pledging that he would provide documentary evidence before the panel when it is set up.
Senate President, Dr. Olubukola Saraki, granted his prayers and approved the setting up of an eight-man committee to investigate the allegations. The upper chamber appointed the Deputy Chief Whip, Sen. Francis Alimikhena, as chairman of the committee. Other Senators that would serve as members of the committee 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).
