Reps demand how a dead police officer refunded N1.9M cash exhibit ‎

The House of Representatives Committee on Public Accounts on Monday queried circumstances surrounding the recovery of a hitherto missing sum of N1.9million exhibit from a supposedly dead police officer, (names withheld) as directed by the committee in November 2016.‎

The Committee during its sitting on Monday also ordered the Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris to provide evidence of missing ammunition since 2010 within seven days or face the full wrath of the law. ‎ ‎

At the session, Chairman of the Committee, Rep. Kingsley Chinda (PDP, Rivers), noted that based on the report of the Auditor General of the Federation of 2010 to 2013, four rifles were missing along with the cash exhibits with 55 queries raised against the Nigeria Police Force during the period.‎

The report said that during the audit examination of arms and ammunition in 2012, it was observed that four different brands of the pistol were missing.‎

The Director of Finance of the Nigeria Police, one Mr. Aliyu Oba accompanied by a Chief Superintendent of Police, CSP J.O.Egbunike while responding the queries told the Committee members that the police had substantially complied to the directive of the committee by furnishing the Secretariat with relevant documents.  ‎

But chairman Chinda countered him, saying that “most of the information supplied the secretariat were not in order and there’s a need for you to liaise with the Secretariat and make relevant corrections”. ‎

He said: “On the issue, if finance we may step that down till the next 14days for you to put your documents in order or we shall apply the rules accordingly”. ‎

“For instance, you claimed that the IPO in charge had refunded the exhibit cash that AuGF demanded and he also responded to the forms we asked you to fill.

“One Mr Nasir Musa who replaced the late IPO, could he have gotten the money from the late IPO as you reflected in your report”, Chinda wondered. ‎

Members of the Committee also asked the DFA whether it was possible the new IPO visited the grave yard of the dead IPO to collect the money. ‎
