Misau Accuses Police IG of 'Romancing' Female Officers
The lawmaker representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District, Senator Isa, has a score to settle with the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.
He has continued to point accusing fingers at Nigeria's number one cop.
Misau, on Wednesday, while raising a point of order at plenary, reiterated his earlier allegations against Idris, including the IGP’s alleged “secret” marriage to a serving police officer.
The lawmaker had recently alleged that the police is collecting about N120bn annually from corporate organisations and Very Important Persons for security services, an allegation he restated again on the floor of the Senate.
Idris had, in response, accused Misau of being a deserter.
"It (the situation) has even gone worse. The IGP is having relationships with two policewomen, who he promoted under special promotion. One of them is Aminat and the other is a DSP.
“The IGP, last month, got married to that woman but under the police service rules and regulations, you cannot marry a serving officer unless the person retires. He quickly did a secret wedding in Kaduna because the lady was four months pregnant.
“I am saying all these because of the institution, because we have so many excellent officers who are now demoralised; who are now frustrated because of the activities of the IGP.”
Misau urged the Senate to set up an investigative panel to investigate his allegations against Idris.
