Former Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, has denied taking away 24 police vehicles as alleged by his successor, Ibrahim Idris. The ex-IGP also denied getting any letter from Idris since he has been in the United Kingdom.

Arase made the clarification in a statement he signed and issued from London, United Kingdom, where he went for his son’s graduation.

According to him, every information needed by his successor on vehicles bought by the police were in his hand-over notes.

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

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

It had been earlier reported that the new Acting IG had claimed that Arase went away with 24 police vehicles while the seven Deputy Inspectors-General of Police, who retired alongside him, also carted away between seven and eight cars each.
