Following the controversy surrounding alleged release of cars to Wife of the President, Aisha Buhari, the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has said that he released a Toyota Sienna and Hiace bus to the aide-de-camp to Aisha Buhari, and not to the President’s wife.
Senator representing the Bauchi Central Senatorial District, Senator Isa Misau, had alleged that the police boss gave Aisha Buhari two jeeps, which according to him is not part of the appropriation.
However, in a statement signed by the police spokesman, Jimoh Moshood, the police chief stressed that the two vehicles are not for Aisha’s personal use as alleged by the lawmaker.
“It is within the powers of the IG as stated above that when on January 17, 2017, SP Sani Baba-Inna, the ADC to the wife of the President requested two vehicles for police personnel for convoy movement and security purposes, two vehicles, Toyota Sienna Bus with Reg. No. NPF 2406D and Toyota Hiace Bus with Reg. No. NPF 3363D, were approved by the Inspector-General of Police to the ADC, wife of the President, SP Sani Baba-Inna, for the purposes requested and not to the person of the wife of the President or for her personal use as alleged by Misau,” the state reads.
