How IGP Adamu Allegedly Paid Over N2 Billion For Tenure Extension


IGP Adamu Allegedly Paid Over N2 Billion

A top source in the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has alleged that the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, paid over ₦2 billion to get a one-year extension in office.

Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari last Thursday extended the tenure of IGP Adamu for three months.

The Minister of Police Affairs, Maigari Dingyadi, disclosed this development while briefing State House correspondents at the Presidential Villa in Abuja.

He noted that the President’s extension of the IGP’s tenure was to allow sufficient time to select a new police boss.

However, the source said the police boss was not pleased that he only received a 3-month extension and therefore refused to celebrate his extension of tenure.

He claimed that the IGP visited traditional rulers and individuals of influence throughout Nigeria and also spent a one-year extension on influencers in the Presidential Villa, but the attempts did not materialise.

The source told SaharaReporters: “He is very upset after spending over N2 billion to get a one-year tenure (extension), and has refused to celebrate his tenure extension.” He had brought marabouts (a holy Muslim man or hermit) well guarded by MOPOL (mobile police) from Maiduguri, but their predictions did not work.

He reportedly visited traditional rulers and people of influence throughout Nigeria and spent only 3 months on villa influencers, and he’s very sad about it. He locked his door when the announcement was made; he did not allow senior officers to congratulate him.’

“Now, in the upper ranks of the police, he has embarked on a vendetta mission against those suspected of having campaigned against him,” the source added.

The source said officers were not happy with the development, alleging that those who were not qualified were also promoted by the IGP.

An example of the source was the recent appointment of the aide-de-camp to the governor of the State of Nasarawa and the rapid promotion of a policewoman, Nonye Welle, who “the IGP claimed was his physician to the status of assistant police commissioner while her classmates are still police superintendents.”
