Oct 24, 2016 – 19 NPF Cars & SUVs Stolen By Former IGP Solomon Arase Recovered

Nigeria’s Police Inspector General Ibrahim Idris has ordered a investigation into the fraudulent purchase and distribution of vehicles by his predecessors.

It was gathered that the probe was informed by the discovery that retiring officers, including former IGs and Deputy Inspectors-General of Police, were in the habit of appropriating police vehicles for their personal use.

Investigations revealed that the probe, which is being handled by the Special Investigation Panel, had identified and recovered 19 police vehicles from former IG, Solomon Arase.

Some of the vehicles include assorted sedans, Sports Utility Vehicles and pick-up vans.

The vehicles, it was learnt, were apart from the four vehicles he was entitled to take away with him on retirement.

A senior officer, who is familiar with the investigation, said the Special Investigation Panel was still working to recover five additional vehicles from the former police boss.

It was learnt that the SIP, headed by Assistant Inspector-General of Police, Ali Amodu, (retd.), had also recovered a number of police vehicles from other retired DIGs.

The recovered vehicles were said to have been distributed to newly promoted Commissioners of Police and AIGs.

    Does being an IG entitle you to four cars at retirement? There’s just too much waste in our government.

    Imagine a laborer that served the government for thirty five years retired not even with the wheel barrow that he used in carrying out his duties. The laborer goes home with promised but unpaid gratuity that cannot buy a bicycle. I mean his children because the laborer is dead as at the time the government paid his so called gratuity. Don’t forget that his monthly pension was not paid due to the fact that the permanent secretary has not signed the necessary paperwork.

    Nigerians have a very big heart
    it’s terrible for IG of police to commit such a wicked and unlawful act even after leaving him with four cars after his retirement and he still confiscate another 19 cars. Chai, what a well trained criminal in uniform as head of Nigerian police force, infact we are in danger with all these our so called leaders.
    He must face justice,if not Nigeria is going no where because nobody is above the law. And those big leaders must receive double punishment because they know the law and and still commit the unlawful act.
    Nigerians na waah ooo, make una try change abeg
    Vanity upon vanity is vanity
