IGP Idris exposed Aisha Buhari, others – Misau | Aisha, IGP react

More wounds are opening up in the lingering quagmire between the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr Ibrahim Idris and Senator Isah Hamma Misau, APC, Bauchi Central as the latter has again raised fresh allegations against the former, Vanguard reports.

This time, Senator Isa Hamma Misau has disclosed that the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, was the mastermind of the leaked documents which exposed the President’s wife, Mrs. Aisha Buhari and not him.




In a statement issued Thursday in Abuja, Senator Misau said that his comment on approval of two jeeps by the IGP for the president’s wife, was in reference to court documents filed in the charge against him by the Inspector General of Police and the Attorney General of the Federation.

According to him, “the said documents which form part of the proof of evidence to the charge are correspondence between the Inspector General of Police and the following: the President and C-in-C of the Federation; The Chief of Staff to the President; the Director, National Institute of Policy and Strategic Studies; the ADC to the Wife of. The President; and the Chief Personal Security Officer to the President.”

The Senator however accused the IGP of blackmailing the President’s wife and other high ranking personalities by deliberately and unethically exposing their correspondences.

Misau’s statement read,”it was indeed a shock to me, as am sure it is to other Nigerians to see such private and confidential documents with all the minutes of the President and other top government officials carelessly displayed in the public by the Inspector General of Police in manifest breach of official secrecy.

“The motive for displaying these documents is no doubt suspicious given that they have little or no bearing on the matter of inappropriate practices within the Police.

“My submission before the Senate Ad hoc Committee was simply to call the attention of members as well as the general public to how the IGP is unethically dropping names through filing of secret documents so as to rope these top ranking innocent personalities into the case.

“The IGP is the one who submitted the official documents mentioning the names of respected personalities, not me. I believe I need to make this clarification.”

A copy of the document filed in court by the Inspector General of Police and the Attorney General of the Federation, which was made available to Journalists showed that the request for a Sienna vehicle and a Toyota Hiace Bus for the first lady was indeed addressed to Ibrahim Idris and signed by the ADC to the President’s Wife, SP Sani Baba-Inna.

The request which was contained in letter which was dated January 17, 2017, was officially approved the following day by the IGP in a handwritten minute approving the purchase of two jeeps.

In a statement signed by police spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood, the police IG said the vehicles were given to Aisha Buhari’s police detail, and they were 1 Toyota Sienna Bus and a Toyota Hiace Bus, not Prado SUVs. He said:
It is within the powers of the IG as stated above that when on January 17, 2017, SP Sani Baba-Inna, the ADC  to the wife of the President requested two vehicles for police personnel for convoy movement and security purposes, two vehicles, Toyota Sienna Bus with Reg. No. NPF 2406D and Toyota Hiace Bus with Reg. No. NPF 3363D, were approved by the Inspector-General of Police to the ADC, wife of the President, SP Sani Baba-Inna, for the purposes requested and not to the person of the wife of the President or for her personal use as alleged by Misau.
The first lady had before the statement released by the IG said she still used her personal cars, and did not receive the mentioned vehicles.

She had said this both through her personal Twitter, and in a statement released through her Director of Information, Suleiman Haruna.

She wrote on her Twitter, “I am still using my personal cars,” quoting a news report of Misau’s allegation.

The statement released through Haruna also echoed the statement. It read:
Our attention has been drawn to the news being widely circulated and attributed to a member of the Senate that two SUVs from the Inspector-General of Police were given to the wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Muhammadu Buhari, personally.
The wife of the President wants to make it clear that since the assumption of office of her husband as the President of Nigeria, she did not receive these mentioned vehicles.
Furthermore, the vehicles she is still using belong to the family and were the ones used during the campaign for 2015 elections including the one for her entourage.
