EXPOSED: See How Much IGP Paid To Get Tenure Extension And Those He Paid


A source in the Nigerian Police Force has reported that Mohammed Adamu paid more than N2 billion to get a one-year extension in office following the recent retirement of the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu.

However, Adamu is said to be disappointed that he only got a 3-month extension and therefore declined to celebrate the extension of his term.

The IGP visited traditional rulers and individuals of importance in Nigeria, according to the source, and also spent a one-year extension on influencers in the Presidential Villa, but the attempts did not materialize.

When the extension of the office was announced for the IGP, the source said, Adamu locked his door, preventing senior officers from congratulating him.

“The source said: “He is very angry after investing over N2 billion to get a one-year tenure (extension), and has declined to celebrate the extension of his tenure. He had brought marabouts (a holy Muslim man or hermit) well guarded by MOPOL (mobile police) from Maiduguri, but their predictions did not work.

He officially met traditional rulers and people of influence in Nigeria and spent just 3 months on villa influencers, and he’s really sad about it. He locked his door when the announcement was made; he did not allow senior officers to congratulate him.’

The source said the bitter IGP is now on a vengeance mission to make it pay for those who protested against its extension of tenure in the police.

“Now, in the upper ranks of the police, he has embarked on a vendetta mission against those alleged to have campaigned against him,” the source said.

The source told SaharaReporters that officers were not happy with the development, alleging that those who were not eligible were also promoted by the IGP.

An example of the source was the recent appointment of the aide-de-camp to the governor of the State of Nasarawa and the rapid promotion of a policewoman, Nonye Welle, who “the IGP claimed was his physician to the status of assistant police commissioner while her classmates are still police superintendents.”

The son of the IGP is Hassan Adamu, who is the ADC to Abdullahi Sule, the governor of Nasarawa State.

A three-month extension of the tenure of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) was declared on Thursday at the Presidential Villa, Abuja, by the Minister of Police Affairs, Mohammad Dingyadi.

Dingyadi had said that the extension was appropriate to give space for a successor to be properly chosen.

Having spent a maximum of 35 years in service, Adamu was due to retire from the police last Monday.

The three-month extension has been described by many legal professionals as unlawful and unconstitutional.
