The lawmaker representing Bauchi central, Isah Misau, has alleged that the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, impregnated a serving deputy superintendent of police (DSP), Esther, an act which he says contravenes the police act.
Misau added that the IGP is having affairs with two policewomen whom he has given special promotion.
The senator said Idris married Esther because she was “four months pregnant” for him, reports TheCable.
“The IG is openly having two relationships with police women which he gave special promotion. One of them is Amina and one of them is DSP Esther which the IG on 15th of last month got married to that woman DSP. Under police act and regulation you cannot marry a serving woman police officer unless that woman retires,” Misau said.
“He quickly did a secret wedding in Kaduna because the lady is four months pregnant. I am saying this because of the institution – that institution I am supposed to be a stakeholder in that institution. It is the institution that brought me here which I’m proud of.”
Misau said this on the floor of the senate on Wednesday while drawing the attention of the lawmakers to the disagreement he is having with Idris.
The Bauchi senator had also accused IGP of receiving money from oil companies where police officers were sent to provide security.
The police had declared the senator a deserter after he had earlier alleged that the IGP collects money for the posting of police officers.
Senate President, Bukola Saraki, said an ad hoc committee would be set up to probe the allegations.
Attempts to contact the spokesman of the Nigeria Police Force, CSP Jimoh Moshood to comment on the allegations were unsuccessful.
