Metro 19 Police Cars, SUVs Recovered From Ex IG Arase - Punch



A report from Punch claims that 19 police vehicles and SUVs have been recovered from ex Police IG, Solomon Arase.

This follows a probe initiated by current IG Ibrahim Idris, as it was discovered that ex IGs were in the habit of appropriating for themselves cars they used in service.

Someone close to the investigation reportedly said: “We are making progress in our investigations. We were able to trace 24 vehicles to the former IG and we have recovered 19 already. He has yet to release the remaining five, but we won’t let up until we recover all the vehicles. We have pictures of the vehicles and they have been documented, so he can’t deny it, the recovery is a fact.”

Arase had earlier denied taking away 24 vehicles when his successor, Idris, made the allegation during an interview with journalists on July 18, 2016, shortly after he assumed office.
