Details of police vehicles are in my handover notes - Arase

19 July 2016, 10:03

Abuja - Former Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, on Monday denied allegations that he had carted away 24 vehicles following his departure from the police service.

According to a Punch report, the ex-IGP denied the allegations, leveled against him by current Inspector-General Ibrahim Idris, describing the accusations as lies.

While Idris had claimed that he had served Arase with a letter requesting the return of the vehicles, Arase has denied any such incident, adding that he has been residing in the United Kingdom since his retirment from office.

The ex-IGP has since stated that all vehicles purchased under his leadership were distributed to state commands and units of the Nigeria Police Force, adding that all transactions were detailed in his handover notes.

"I suspect there must be a disconnect somewhere because the information needed by my successor are provided in my handover 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," Arase was quoted as saying.
