July 18, 2016 – Ex IGP Solomon Arase Steals 24 Cars Incl.. 2 BMWs From NPF – New IGP, Ibrahim Idris Cries Out

Acting IGP Ibrahim Idris has set up a special investigation panel to probe his predecessor, Solomon Arase, over the disappearance of many police vehicles.

Addressing journalists in Abuja, Idris accused Arase of leaving the force with 24 police vehicles.

He also accused the seven Deputy Inspectors-General of Police, who retired alongside Arase, of going away with eight and seven cars each, leaving him with no good official car.
Idris said he had written Arase to return the cars, which included two official bullet-proof BMW 7 series cars, stressing that the retired police chief and his DIGs were yet to return the vehicles even after writing them.

The police boss revealed that a special investigation team had been set up to look into the records of police vehicle purchases in the last three years as well as how they were distributed.
“If you look through the windows of my former office and from the report from my (Force) transport officer, you would see cars, but a week to the day I would resume, all these cars disappeared.

“So, what I am telling you is that I have signed a directive to my SIP (I have a special investigation panel, I set it up). It is going to investigate all the vehicle purchases, contributions to the police and the distribution of those vehicles in the last three years; we are going to look into that.

“When I took over, there was no vehicle, even the vehicle I would use. I discovered the last IG went away with 24 vehicles; the DIGs, some of them eight, some of them seven. The IG’s vehicles included two BMW 7 series, one armoured; and he left me with an old car.

“The last time I followed the President with it, he was asking me, ‘what are you doing with this old car’ because if you see the headlight, the thing has changed colour, which means they parked it and rains and everything had fallen on it, but the new ones that were bought, he (Arase) went with all of them; they are part of the 24.

“I wrote back to him and said, we have a policy that says when a policeman retires, if you are an IG, AIG, a CP, you are entitled to some vehicles; please, the extra, return it. Four vehicles are enough for an average human being, but what will you even do with four vehicles; but he took 24 vehicles, including two BMW cars.

“I wrote to him (Arase), I wrote to the DIGs,” Idris told journalists.

  1. Nawa o! Probing things flying up and down the political airspace of Nigeria. The ex-IGP must be too greedy to have illegally cornered 24 cars to his side. I bet this has been the norm in the police force. And I just hope that this current IGP is not eyeservicing PMB by this his decision to probe the ex-IGP. Is he trying to say he himself does not have any police property illegally in his possession?

  2. I have no words or judgement for thieves who were supposes to be called thieves but rather were called men in uniform, n given authority over others and their look alikes.. Take it or leave it, police is our problem yesterday, today, and likewise tomorrow.. They will do anything to get what they want including murder and yet proof themselves innocent… If I Shld recall how many innocent ppl u guys killed n molested Ehh, honestly even those cars I wouldn’t spear any to the both of u…. Rubbish!!

    Oya make una carry gun go fight una selves na… kpata kpata if una kill una Sef, I go come una grave and say sorry, but I will definitely not miss the rice and chicken wey them to serve during the celebration, I go cry with one eye and eat with d other wildly opened. Period!

  4. As a citizen of Nigeria we all are Nigerians and as we all know that police aids robbers and criminals in nigeria this is not new in Nigeria history but by the way why does he cart away 24 cars at a go does he mean after retiring he would like to be a car dealer or what? Please we would like to know and hear more about this

  5. What of if he does not return them which is quite unlikely, that means u too will now ask for mny to start buyg ur own cars. U are all d same so pls save us all dis nonsense.
    Just request for ur own which I believe is d reason for all d noise.

  6. How are we even sure his claims are true? If so, he should go arrest him let‘s see.
