The senator representing Bauchi Central at the National Assembly, Isah Hamman Misau, opened a can of worm accussing the inspector general of Police, Ibrahim Idris of having sexual relationship with two female police officers namely, Amina and Esther, He stated that he was being attacked by the IG because he exposed the corrupt activities going on in the police.
Speaking on the floor of the Senate on Wednesday, October 4, 2017, Misau said the IGP recently tied the knot with one of the female officers who he allegedly impregnated. In his words; “Mr President, distinguished colleagues, instead of the IGP to address the issues I raised in my capacity as the Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, he was busy attacking me.
The IGP has been in sexual relationship with two female serving Police officers, that is one Amina and Esther. He impregnated Amina and did a wedding secretly in Kaduna.
As a former Police officer, I can say authoritatively that it is wrong for an officer to have a relationship with female Police officer because of the nature of that work.”
Hamman further stated that the manner in which the promotion of police officers were being handled by IG Idris Ibrahim was corrupt, adding that officers paid as high as N500,000 to get promoted.
He also asked the Senate to investigate occurrences where powerful individuals in the country would have up to 30 police officers guarding them, whereas commoners do not have police around them.
It will be recalled that Misau and the Nigerian police have been locked in a battle for some time now over allegations of bribery and forgery.
