A source within the Nigeria Police Force has revealed that the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, paid over N2 billion to get a one-year extension in office.
IGP Adamu is however said to be unhappy that he only got a 3-month extension and therefore refused to celebrate his tenure extension.
According to the inside source, the IGP visited traditional rulers and persons of influence across Nigeria and also spent on influencers in the Presidential Villa to get a one-year extension but the efforts did not materialise.
The source said when the extension of office for the IGP was declared, Adamu locked his door, which prevented senior officers from congratulating him.
The source said: “After spending over N2 billion to get one-year tenure (extension), he is very upset and has refused to celebrate his tenure extension. He had brought in marabouts (a Muslim holy man or hermit) from Maiduguri well guarded by MOPOL (mobile police) but their predictions didn’t work.
“He reportedly visited traditional rulers and persons of influence across Nigeria and spent on 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 senior officers to congratulate him.”
The source said the unhappy IGP is now on 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 sad with the development, saying that the IGP also promoted those who were not qualified.
