The Nigeria Poice Force Inspector General Police (IGP), Mohammed Adamu, has debunked the allegation that he paid N2 billion to get a tenure extension.
Responding to the allegation as published by online media, the police force term the rumor as false and defamatory to the entire Force and the reverend office of the IGP.
Frank Mba, the Force Public Relations Officer in a written statement made available to newsmen in Abuja, confirmed that the tenure extension of the IGP was solely the decision and act of the President, Muhammadu Buhari, and was not paid for as objected and rumored by an online publisher.
Mab assures the Nation the IGP is calm about the situation. He’s more concerned about delivering adequate security to the Nation amidst the on-going subtle unrest in most parts of the Nation.
Read the statement below;
“The Police High Command has described as untrue, unfounded, defamatory and libelous, the publication by Sahara Reporters, dated February 07, 2021, which alleged that the Inspector-General of Police, IGP M.A Adamu, NPM, mni paid over 2 Billion Naira for the tenure extension.
“The insinuations also by Sahara Reporters that the IGP did not “celebrate” his extension smacks of ignorance and apathetic misplacement of priority. The extension does not call for merry-making or celebration but a time for more work, rededication to duty, and selfless service to the Nation.
“The IGP, while assuring the Nation of an unwavering commitment by the Force under his leadership, to improved service delivery, safety and security of the citizenry, enjoins members of the public to disregard and discountenance the publication by Sahara Reporters as evidently untrue and unfounded. The IGP is undistracted, and the Force remains motivated and committed to delivering on its mandate, especially the task of neutralizing current and emerging internal security threats.
“Meanwhile, the IGP has directed his legal team to commence legal actions against the online publisher.”
