Aisha Buhari, Ambode, Emefiele Implicated In IG Probe
The face off between the lawmaker representing the Bauchi Central Senatorial District, Isa Misau, and the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has taken a new twist.
The lawmaker has opened a can of worms which is implicating the high and mighty.
Misau made more allegations when he appeared before the Senate Ad Hoc Committee on Investigation of Allegations Against the Police boss and the Police Service Commission.
According to Misau, details of how Idris gave Mrs. Buhari the two SUV are 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, Abubakar Malami, on behalf of the Federal Government.
He said, “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.”
Members of the panel, however, asked Misau to clarify who the “First Lady” was as she could be wife of the president or a governor.
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.”
When contacted on the telephone, the Director of Information to the Wife of the President, Suleiman Haruna, said he had no information on the matter at the time.
Misau also criticised the leadership of the Lagos State Police Command as an example of how the IG was allegedly involved in favouritism.
He alleged that the current Acting Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, was posted to Lagos State because he was a classmate to Governor Akinwunmi Ambode.
He also added, “Apart from that, the CBN Governor (Dr. Godwin Emefiele) around June and July of this year directed all commercial banks to give money to police in hundreds of millions – every commercial bank. That money runs into billions.”
