According to a report by SaharaReporters, a source the Nigeria Police has revealed that the Inspector General of Police, Adamu, paid over N2 to get a -year extension .

Adamu is however said to be unhappy that he only got a 3-month extension and therefore refused to his tenure extension.

According to the source, the IGP visited and of influence across Nigeria and also spent influencers the Presidential Villa to get a -year extension but the efforts did not materialise.

The source said when the extension of for the IGP was declared, Adamu locked his door, which prevented officers from congratulating him.

The source said: “After spending over N2 to get -year tenure (extension), he is very upset and has refused to his tenure extension. He had brought in marabouts (a holy man or hermit) from Maiduguri well guarded by MOPOL ( police) but their predictions didn’t work.

“He reportedly visited and of influence across Nigeria and spent villa influencers only to get 3 months and he is very sad about it. When the announcement was made, he locked his door; he did not allow officers to congratulate him.”

The source said the bitter IGP is now a revenge mission to make those who campaigned against his tenure extension in the police pay for it.

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

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

The source said an example was the recent appointment of the aide-de-camp to the governor and the rapid promotion of a policewoman, Nonye Welle, whom “the IGP claimed was his doctor to the status of Assistant Commissioner of Police while her coursemates are Superintendents of Police”.

The tenure extension of the Inspector General of Police (IGP) by three months was announced on Thursday by the Minister of Police Affairs, Mohammad Dingyadi, at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Dingyadi had claimed that the extension was necessary to give room for the proper selection of a successor.

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

Many legal practitioners have described the three-month extension as illegal and unconstitutional.
