‘FG moves in to settle the fight between IGP and Senator Misau’

The Federal Government has interfered in the throwing of tantrums, between the Chairman, Senate Committee on Navy, Senator Isah Hamman Misau (APC, Bauchi Central), and the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris.

Why it matters: Allegations of corruption, nepotism, misuse of office, misappropriation of funds, illegal promotion levelled against Mr Idris by Mr Misau.


  • Vanguard reports that the government has decided to intervene in the issue to avoid overheating the polity and not to allow the opposition party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), take advantage of the situation to rubbish the federal government.
  • The federal government wants both Idris and Misau to settle out of court. Against this backdrop, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, will be meeting with both the IGP and Misau to brainstorm on the way forward and to ensure the matter was settled out of court.
  • The SGF wants a situation of no victor, no vanquished.
  • Consequently, the Senate Ad-hoc Committee investigating the allegations levelled against IGP, the Police, and Police Service Commission, which is chaired by the Deputy Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Francis Alimikhena (APC, Edo North), may suspend the investigation until the SGF has completed his assignment in reconciling the two people parties involved in the matter.
