Metro Ex -Police Boss, Solomon Arase Denies Stealing 24 Vehicles



Former Inspector General of Polic, Solomon Arase Monday said that every information needed by his successor on vehicles bought by the police were in his handover notes.

He said all vehicles bought by the police under him were distributed to the state commands and other appropriate units of the force.

He also denied getting any letter from Idris since he has been in the UK.

“I suspect there must be a disconnect somewhere because every information needed by my successor are provided in my handover notes,” Mr. Arase said.


“I’m also not aware that any letter was written to me because if there was any dropped in my house, someone would have alerted me.

“It’s unfortunate that this matter is being made a media issue because my successor has my telephone number and could have called me for any clarification or even sent me a text message rather than addressing the media on an issue well documented in my handover notes.”

Mr. Arase’s successor, Ibrahim Idris, had said on Sunday that his former boss went away with 24 police vehicles after he retired from service.
