Retired Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Solomon Arase has described as false, the report accusing him of stealing 24 police vehicles when he left office.
Arase who reacted through a statement from London, where he is for his son’s graduation said every information needed by his successor on vehicles bought by the police is contained in the handover notes.
The statement reads in part: “I suspect there must be a disconnect somewhere because every information needed by my successor are provided in my hand-over notes.”
He also denied the allegation that the Ag. IGP, Ibrahim Idris sent him a letter concerning the car.
According to him: “I am also not aware that any letter was written to me because if there was any dropped in my house, someone would have alerted me.
He further explained that all vehicles bought by the police under him were distributed to the state commands and other appropriate units of the Nigeria Police Force.
Arase however promised to address the issues when he arrives Nigeria.
The Acting Inspector General of Police, (IGP), Ibrahim Idris had on Sunday said that Arase went away with 24 police vehicles after his retirement.
Idris also claimed that he wrote Arase to return the cars, which included two official bullet-proof BMW 7 series cars.Share on Facebook
