Southern Kaduna Killings: At Last, Ag. President Osinbajo Wakes Up From Slumber, Orders IGP To Report At Aso Rock

Osinabo and Police IG, Ibrahim Idris
He was accused of 'un-golden silence' by the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN over alleged killing of Christians in Southern Kaduna, Kaduna State; the Acting President may have woken up from slumber as he has summoned the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to Aso Rock as there is resurgence of violence in the area,

This followed additional security measures, including the deployment of 15,285 policemen, put in place by the Nigeria Police Force in Southern Kaduna.


According to Punch Newspaper,  the acting president demanded an explanation over the recent resurgence of violence that resulted in the deaths of 21 persons, despite the security measures and level of attention to the area.

It was learnt that Osinbajo invited the IGP to the Presidential Villa to find out what the police was doing to end the crisis and to issue further directives on restoring law and order to the affected communities.

Our Source gathered that the outcome of the meeting with the acting president was the decision to intensify security with additional measures that would help contain the situation.

Besides deploying over 15,000 police officers in the area, it was also learnt that the Police High Command had concluded arrangements for the establishment of a new police squadron in Kafanchan, Kaduna, as part of broad measures adopted to curb the violence.

It was further gathered that 18 Armoured Personnel Carriers and a unit of Belarus-trained Police Special Forces had been deployed in Southern Kaduna.

The police, in addition, were said to have increased helicopter surveillance in the entire area to prevent a recurrence of violence in the communities.

No fewer than 38 suspects were said to have been arrested in connection to the violent attacks, while 29 firearms were recovered.

The IGP was said to have given the assurance that there would be greater police presence and security in Southern Kaduna.

It was also learnt that the Chief of Army Staff, Lt.-Gen. Tukur Buratai, briefed the acting president on the situation in the North-East, where the military is said to be in control of the situation and mopping up remnants of the Boko Haram insurgents on a “regular and constant basis.”

Plans are underway for a briefing on the overall security situation of the country.

SHOCKER: Top Police Officers Accuse Buhari IG, Idris Of Massive Looting, Embezzlement, Cowardice, Sleeping With Female Officers

SHOCKER: Top Police Officers Accuse Buhari IG, Idris Of Massive Looting, Embezzlement, Cowardice, Sleeping With Female Officers

Buhari and Police IG
Sahara Reporters - Several senior and mid-level police officers have provided SaharaReporters with a list of grave acts of corruption allegedly committed by Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris. The officers, some of them retired but most still in active service, stated that the IGP’s notoriety for embezzlement of funds, frequent abandonment of his post, and sexual liaisons with subordinates preceded his time as the Commissioner of Police for Kano State. The allegationsraise serious questions about Mr. Idris’s fitness to lead the police force in the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari with its vow to build public trust in institutions.

One of the most alarming allegations against Mr. Idrisrelate to the unlawful sale of thirty vehicles. “Idris should be investigated on the circumstances leading to the disappearance of about 30 vehicles which are known to have been released to fictitious claimants,” one serving police officer said.

The illicitly sold vehicles include a Honda Accord, registration number BP 529 KMC, sold to an Ahmed Sani Mohammed of Kano State, a Honda Civic, registration number BH 742 NSR, to an Ibrahim Jamilu of Kano State, a Toyota Sienna, registration number RBC 501 AM, to a Hajiya Safiya Danlami of Kano State, a Nissan Murano, with registration number NSR 389 XV, to a Datti Abubakar of Kano State, an unregistered Honda Civic to Garba Shehu of Kano State, and an unregistered Toyota Matrix to a Friday Kassimu also of Kano State.

According to our police sources, other vehicles disposed of in shady circumstances include an unregistered Mercedes Benz, a Volkswagen Golf 111, and a Toyota Lexus Jeep.The sources disclosed that the addresses associated with the so-called buyers of the vehicles are incomplete—often without street numbers or phone number contacts. The incomplete addresses have made it impossible to authenticate the identity of the buyers. “It is all part of the IG’s ploy to conceal his wrongdoing. We urge the Presidency to order a probe into the so-called sale of these cars. They will find that the truth is that Idris acquired most, if not all, those vehicles for himself,” one senior police source said.

Police sources told our correspondent that Mr. Idris was a practiced hand at the selling of public property for private profit. They alleged that he played a key role in the unlawful sale of police property in Kano State outposts for personal gain during the height of the Boko Haram crisis. 

Several police sources remarked on Mr. Idris’s notoriety for sexual relationships with his subordinates. “In total disregard of police ethics, the IG has been cohabitating with a corporal named Amina,” one source claimed. He added, “Amina wields a lot of influence within the force.”

Another officer corroborated the account. “Idris has the habit of dismissing senior officers during official hours to spend time with Amina who even poses for photographs in his office,” said the source. The sources told SaharaReporters that the IGP transferred Amina to Abuja where she is now living luxuriously in a hotel and driven about in a Frontier Jeep—all her expenses allegedly paid for by Mr. Idris despite his meager public servant salary.

Our sources alleged that Mr. Idris’s extravagant lifestyle extends to the United States where he has a spouse, a woman he met while on a peacekeeping mission in Liberia. The US-based wife, Maria Idris, is of Liberian descent, and reportedly has two children for the IGP. Our sources said Mr. Idris has been supporting his US-based wife, questioning how he can afford such expenses on his police salary.

“The IG’s maintenance of a family in faraway America is repeatedly discussed by fellow officers. We wonder howhas been able to pay for the expenses of his second family in the US,” one source told SaharaReporters.

Other police sources said they were dismayed that President Buhari chose a man as IGP who lacks operational expertise and courage. One officer alleged that, as the Commissioner of Police in Kano, Mr. Idris locked himself inside a toilet for hours during an attack by Islamist insurgents belonging to Boko Haram in Kano. “During a Boko Haram raid in 2012, the then Commissioner of Police [Mr. Idris] locked himself in the toilet for hours at the State Police Command Headquarters,” said the source. He added that Mr. Idris’s hiding allowed Boko Haram fighters to move through Kano unimpeded, killing men, women and children as well as police officers.

Several officers contrasted Mr. Idris’s cowardice with the bravery displayed in Borno State by the Commissioner of Police, Simeon Midenda. They said Mr. Midenda joined some agents of the Department of State Security (DSS) in a fierce battle with Boko Haram insurgents. They added that Mr. Midenda’s efforts led to the killing of numerous Boko Haram insurgents. 

Our police sources also accused Mr. Idris of naked nepotism in making top appointments. They said the IGP’s questionable appointments included that of CSP Kolo to head the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS). Our sources said Mr. Kolo had been accused of raping a woman. They added that Mr. Kolo was never seriously investigated for the alleged rape, adding, “We demand that the then AIG in charge, Alhaji Tambari Yabobe, be mandated to produce the case file and to explain why the matter was swept under the carpet.”

Our sources, including a member of a watchdog group, also accused Mr. Idris of leading a crop of officers who carried out extrajudicial killings in Kano State during a period of assaults by Islamist terrorists. 

SaharaReporters repeatedly reached out to Mr. Idris for comment on these allegations. However, he declined to take our calls and did not respond to text messages. SaharaReporters spoke to one of Mr. Idris’s deputies who said the IG was in a meeting and would return our call afterwards. Mr. Idris never rang back.

N284b Budget Padding: Dogara, 3 Others Invited By Police, May Be Detained In Kuje Prison, IG Constitutes Probe Team

N284b Budget Padding: Dogara, 3 Others Invited By Police, May Be Detained In Kuje Prison, IG Constitutes Probe Team

N284b Budget Padding: Police Invites Dogara, Constitutes Probe Team
The Speaker the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara and some of his principal officers indicted by former Appropriation Committee Chairman, Abdulmumin Jibrin over the padding of N284 billion in 2016 budget has invited and may be detained by the Police authority, News Punch has learnt reliably

This is as even the Acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP) Ibrahim Idris, personally raised a 5-man special team to probe the alleged padding of the budget by House of Representatives Speaker Yakubu Dogara and some of his principal officers, The Nationa Newspaper confirms

The Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) Amodu Ali-led Special Investigative Panel (SIP) has invited Dogara, his deputy Yusuff Lasun, Chief Whip Alhassan Ado Doguwa and Minority Leader Leo Ogor to appear before it on Friday.

The panel yesterday had what was called “a preliminary session” with ousted House Committee on Appropriations chairman Abdulmumin Jibrin, who accused Dogara and others of padding the budget with N284 billion.

The All Progressives Congress (APC) has met with the warring Dogara and Jibrin to resolve their differences. Jibrin was at the party’s secretariat in Abuja where he met with the National Working Committee (NWC) members.

Dogara was said to have earlier met with the committee. The day of the meeting was, however, not given.

Last Monday, Jibrin petitioned the police, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) and other anti-corruption agencies over the matter.

Jibrin was said to have “furnished the SIP with vital information and a heap of documents” at their meeting yesterday.

A highly-placed police source, who spoke in confidence, said Ibrahim has directed the SIP to conduct a “comprehensive investigation into Jibrin’s petition.”

The source said: “We have commenced full investigation into the N284billion budget padding in the House of Representatives based on a petition from Hon. Jibrin.

”A Special Investigative Panel (SIP), with a crack detective, AIG Amodu Ali as the chairman, is the one saddled with the responsibility of looking into the allegations in the petition. The same Ali uncovered the lid on the $620,000 bribery scam in the House for which a former Chairman of the House Committee on Fuel Subsidy Management, Mallam Farouk Lawan, and the Clerk of the committee, Mr. Boniface Emenalo were indicted. The case is in court.

“You will recall that Ali was deeply involved in the investigation of the $180million Halliburton scam. So, the SIP is led by an officer who is tested.”

Asked of the preliminary work done by the SIP, the source added: “As I am talking to you (4pm yesterday), a letter of invitation has been addressed and sent to the Speaker, the Deputy Speaker, the Chief Whip and the Minority Leader.

“They will be interrogated by the SIP on Friday. As a prelude to the invitation of the principal officers, the SIP chairman and members had a session with Jibrin on Tuesday.

“It was not a grilling session. But Jibrin furnished the team with vital information and a heap of documents to back up the petition he submitted on Monday.

“We are going into the merit or otherwise of the petition on Friday by inviting Dogara and three others. It is going to be a gradual thing but we will crack the padding controversy.”

Also yesterday, Jibrin confirmed that security has been beefed up around him by the Department of State Service (DSS) and the police.

He also asked the All Progressives Congress (APC) to prevail on Dogara to reconvene the House and step aside to face prosecution for alleged budget padding.

Jibrin, in a message on his Twitter handle, said: “My attention has been drawn to media reports that I have been summoned to appear before a disciplinary committee of our great party.

“That I received a letter yesterday evening (Monday) inviting me to a meeting in respect of the crisis in the House on Tuesday (yesterday) by 2pm at the party’s office.

“The letter did not in any way indicate it as a disciplinary committee. And I have responded that I will attend the meeting despite my tight schedules shuttling between security and anti-corruption agencies to provide support and evidence against Speaker Dogara and nine others.

“I am confident that the party will do the right thing by throwing its weight to support our resolve to wipe out corruption in the House and direct Speaker Dogara, Deputy Speaker Lasun, Whip Doguwa and Minority Leader Ogor to reconvene the House immediately and step down to face imminent prosecution and save the party and our dear country from further embarrassment.”

Meet Top 6 Police Chiefs In Battle To Succeed Arase As He Retires

Meet Top 6 Police Chiefs In Battle To Succeed Arase As He Retires

Meet Top 6 Police Chiefs In Battle To Succeed Arase As He Retires
Source: Leadership Newspaper
Intense lobbying and profiling of possible successor of the outgoing Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase has commenced, with six top Police officers jostling for the number one cop position in the country

The incumbent Inspector General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase's will by June this year retire, having attained the mandatory retirement age of 60.

POLICE chiefs reportedly lobbying to replace Arase are; AIG Hassan Bala Abdulahi, AIG Johnson Ogunsakin, Olufemi Adebowale Adenaike, CP Austin Iwar, AIG Umar Abubakar Manko and Ibrahim Idris, Leadership Newspaper reports this morning.

The presidency, Leadership said deliberately allowed the IGP to complete his tenure by ignoring the option of sending him on terminal leave due to the impressive manner he was handling the high rate of insecurity in the country.

A dependable source revealed to LEADERSHIP Weekend that Arase’s retirement date draws closer, some senior police officers and prominent persons have started lobbying for themselves and on behalf of others.

It was however gathered reliably that the presidency is more disposed to picking Arese’s successor based on professionalism, competence and integrity, which is different from the old ways of mere favouritism, ethnicity and religious considerations.

Our source who preferred not be named in print said, “Although people have been lobbying for themselves and on behalf of others- one just left my office this afternoon- what I have told each of them is that the President is not somebody you go and talk to on such matters because he is a retired military Officer himself.

“He understands what is good and what destroys the service. I think the easiest thing this president can ever do is to choose the service chiefs. So, lobbying would not help anybody, in fact it will even destroy your case.

“I believe he will look at their antecedents, their records, qualification, competence and let me say this, nobody should lobby for anything because Buhari will not accept anybody he knows would not able to do the job. I cannot even speak to him , but if, he asks me, of course I would make an input, but ultimately it is going to be based on merit, competence, records of service, professionalism and integrity”, the source.

LEADERSHIP checks revealed that about four Assistant Inspectors General and two Commissioner of Police are in the line of succession as Solomon Arase bows out in June.
