Senator Isah Misau alleges IG of Police, Ibrahim Idris, impregnated and then married a female officer who was promoted without proper qualification

The ongoing war of words between the Inspector General
of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, and Sen. Isah Hamman
Misau, may be far from over, as the lawmaker, on the
floor of the Senate, today, alleged that the Police boss has
impregnated and now married a female police officer,
which he said, is against the rule of the Police Service
(PSC).

According to The Sun, Senator Misau said the lady in
question had since been promoted, despite her lack of
qualification for the new rank. The senator said the
corruption in the Force, under the current IGP, Ibrahim
Idris, must be questioned if the integrity of the Force must
be restored.

“I am aware that the IGP has impregnated a
female officer in his office. Because he wanted to
save his face, he hurriedly went ahead and
married the woman. The wedding ceremony was
held in Kaduna State. The female officer was
already four months pregnant. This is against the
rules of the Police Service Commission. You
cannot marry another police officer while you are
still serving. But the IGP has flouted that law.” he
said
Misau said the pregnant female officer, was also
compensated by the police IG, by illegally promoting her,
despite her lack of qualification. The lawmaker said the
marriage between the IGP and the female officer,
contravenes the code of ethics of the Force.

Misau in his long remarks, said:
“During the recess a lot of things happened
between me and the office of the IGP. I am a
retired police officer and served for 10 years and
my father was in the police too and served for 34
years.. In fact, he joined the police even before I
was born. So when I speak about police, I know
what I am saying. When I speak about police, I
speak on authority. I was concerned about what
was happening in the police in terms of bribery
which led the IG to be scared. I called three
serving officers and they confirmed to me that
people pay much more than N500,000 to get
promotion. Even the revenue the police is
generating we know. Police is not supposed to
generate money, meanwhile companies pay
money to police to provide security for them.

This is an open secret. It is obvious that even
people with questionable character have police
bbacking withsiren all over the place. One police
officer is supposed to be for 400 people, but in
Nigeria, it is one police officer to 800 people and
a marketer for instance will have over 30
policemen, thereby depleting the few police we
have meanwhile the ordinary citizens are left
without adequate protection. Another thing I
found out is that there is illegal diversion of funds
by the IGP. Under the 2016 budget, there is a
place where IG ought to buy Armoured Personnel
Carrier (APC), but he bought luxury cars without
virement.”

The face-off between Misau and police boss, Idris, started
in August this year when the lawmaker, in an interview
granted to a national newspaper, claimed that police
officers pay bribes to get favorable postings and
promotions. The IGP, through the Force spokesman,
Jimoh Moshood, disputed his claims, saying that they
were unfounded. He had further claimed that Misau
deserted the Force and that he would soon be declared
wanted to respond to a disciplinary committee set up to
probe him.

After listening to his submissions today, Senate President
Bukola Saraki, constituted an adhoc committee to
investigate the claims of financial fraud made by Sen.
Misau and report to the Senate as soon as possible. The
adhoc committee is to be headed by the Senate Deputy
Chief Whip, Francis Alimikhena, while Nelson Effiong,
Binta Garba, Obinna Ogba, Faseyi Duro, Abdulaziz Nyako
and Suleiman Hukunyi are to serve as members.

The Senate committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public
Petitions, is to investigate other claims made by Misau
against the IGP. The committee is expected to report in
two weeks.

“We have listened to our colleague and we cannot
ignore the allegations. We have a duty to fight
corruption. These matters are weighty and
investigate. We will set up an adhoc committee to
investigate this allegations and report back to the
Senate. The adhoc committee we will set up will
deal with all the allegations about
misappropriation of funds made against the IGP.

We will refer the other issues about personal
misconduct against the IGP to the Senate
committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public
Petitions to for investigations,” Saraki said.
