Senator Misua reveals how IGP
Recall that Senator Misau was arraigned by the Federal Government on Thursday before an Abuja High Court on a five count charge bothering on alleged injurious falsehood against the IGP, NPF, and the Police Service Commission, PSC.
However, he pleaded not guilty to the charge and was consequently admitted to bail in the sum of N5 million, with two sureties in like sum.
But a top police source told New Telegraph that there is nothing illegal in the donation as there was no law which bars government agencies from assisting each other. He, however, denied that vehicles were donated to the President’s wife, he rather stated that the vehicles were given to the police officers attached to the President’s wife.
The documents before the court stated that the vehicles were approved for the President’s wife early this year, in response to a request signed by one SP Sani M. Baba-Inna, ADC to the wife of the President.
In the letter, dated January 17, 2017 and addressed to the IGP, the ADC requested for Toyota Sienna Space bus and Toyota Hiace Bus to compliment the vehicles attached to Her Excellency, the wife of the President.
The ADC further stated in the request letter that the said vehicles, if approved, will be used to support Her Excellency’s private movement and utilities. In a response to the request, the Office of the IGP on January 18, 2017 directed the Force Transport Officer to provide two Jeeps for the wife of the President.
