You Are A Deserter, Police Tell Senator Alleging Graft Against IGP


Despite Senator Isah Hamman Misau presenting documents purporting
proper disengagement from the Nigeria Police, the number one law enforcement agency of the country is still insisting that the lawmakers who recently raised accountability matter against the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris Kpotum, is a deserter and wanted by the police.

The police, however failed to explain why it suddenly made this realisation after Misau’s allegation of graft against the chief of police.

In a release on Sunday, the police said that Misau still very much on its staff list as a police officer with staff number as AP. No 57300, DSP Mohammed Isa Hamman, allegedly on posting to Niger State Police Command on the 24th September, 2010.

The senator had accused the IGP of cornering N10b monthly Internally Generated Revenue (IGR), taking bribe to post Commissioners of Police to juicy states.

“It’s expedient to disabuse the minds of the members of the Public, most especially people that must have read the story or listened to the fabricated lies, unsubstantiated allegations and shallow imaginations of a personality claiming to be a Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria with premeditated evil plans to incite the public against the Nigeria Police Force,” explained Moshood Jimoh, spokesman for the police in a news release.

“The misleading, misrepresentation of facts and concocted allegations by the Senator against the Inspector General of Police and the Nigeria Police Force are unfounded fallacies aimed at casting aspersions on the renewed commitment of the Nigeria Police Force to ensure law and order and protection of lives and property across the country,” he further stated.

The police alleged that the senator absconded after being redeployed to Niger State Command and refused to report to work. Upon this, stated Jimoh, the police queried him in line with the Public Service
Rules Sections 030301(b)(g)(m)&(o) and 030402(a)(b)(c)(e)&(w), in addition to the previous queries and disciplinary process he was facing when he refused to proceed on Junior Command Course(JCC)
49/2008 at Staff College Jos between 5th January, 2009 and 19th June, 2009.

“The retirement letter presented to the Journalists by DSP Mohammed Isa Hamman is suspiciously forged and dubiously obtained. The letter which was dated 5th March, 2014, a period of more than Four (4) years after AP No 57300 DSP Mohammed Isa Hamman (Senator Isah Hamman Misau)
deserted the Force is now being investigated by the Force,” the police spokesman said.
