The acting Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, says his predecessor, Solomon Arase, went away with twenty-four police vehicles while the seven Deputy Inspectors-General of Police, who retired alongside him, also carted away between seven and eight cars each.
Idris, who said this during an interview with journalists on Sunday in Abuja, explained that he had written Arase to return the cars, adding that a special investigation team was already looking at the records of police vehicle purchases in the last three years as well as how they were distributed. Arase has however denied the allegations of his successor, saying he didn’t go away with any police vehicle. He advised Idris to squarely face security issues confronting the country rather than engaging in media propaganda.
