Missing police vehicles found at Abuja repair shop

19 July 2016, 13:17

Abuja - Twenty-four missing cars alleged to be owned by former Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, have been recovered at a vehicle repair shop in Abuja.

According to Naij, the vehicles had been sent into an official shop for repairs in order for them to be returned to the new Acting IGP, Ibrahim Idris.

The cars, which were discovered at Auto Computers in Abuja, were previously reported to have been carted away by former IGP Arase following his retirement from office.

The official IGP staff car, an armoured, bullet-proof BMW, is said to have received all the relevant repairs and has been repainted.

The spare staff vehicle, also a BMW, is reported to have been having engine problems for the last five years before it was sent in for repairs.

A source at the repair shop has revealed that the spare car was delivered to Police headquarters on Sunday, following which officials from the company are set to visit IGP Idris to demand payment for services rendered.

Arase has since fumed about his name being dragged into the media, stating that Idris should have consulted him first before reporting incorrect facts to the public.
