Police declares Senator Misau wanted, says he is still in Force | Nigeria News Today. Your online Nigerian Newspaper f


The Nigeria Police has asked a serving Senator to return to service on the grounds that he did not legitimately resign from the Force.
Senator Isa Hamman Misau is being wanted by the police for alleged forgery and desertion from the Police.
The Police in Nigeria is insisting that Misau is still a Policeman and should not be a Senator.

Misau is currently representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly.

On Friday, Sen Misau, who is Chairman, Senate Committee on Navy and member of the Committees on Police Affairs and Intelligence, condemned what he described as “series of fraudulent practices in the running of the Nigerian Police”.

Addressing National Assembly Correspondents on Friday, Senator Misau, who is a retired Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP), said that a high level of corruption had been noticed in the handling of monies allegedly being collected by the police as payment for special security services rendered by the Police to corporate bodies, oil firms and highly placed citizens in the country.

The lawmaker also accused the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, of extorting money from Commissioners of Police, State Mobile Commanders and SPU Commanders.

But the Police spokesman, CSP Jimoh Moshood has asked the general public and indeed the Senate to dismiss statements credited to Senator Misau, saying everything he said about the IGP and the Police are false.

According to Moshood, Senator Misau is “a habitual and unrepentant liar.”
“His real name in the Police is DSP Mohammed Isa Hamman, with Police number AP No. 57300. He is still a Police Officer and not a Senator because his name is still in the Police Service.
“Senate will do the nation good by asking him to return to the Nigeria Police Force to face disciplinary committee and answer all the charges bordering on serious misconduct, unprofessional wrong doings as earlier contained in our press statement released today.
“We want the public to know that he is not fit and proper to be a Senator of the federal republic of Nigeria; because that purported retirement letter he displayed today was forged.
“All DSP Hamman was saying were cheap blackmail, distraction and deliberate acts to derail investigation.
“So the force will want the Senate Ethics and Privileges committee which we have confidence and trust into see reason to ask him to dress up in his police uniform to come and appear before police disciplinary committee to answer charges against him.
“The IGP has no use to distractions DSP Hamman is instituting before the public, and no matter the position any person is, once he or she runs afoul of the law, he will be made to answer the charges,’’ Moshood stated.

  1. This guy has been a senator since when for the police to just realise he didn't leave the service.Hope Efcc is invited to look into his allegations against the IGP and others

  2. Hey what is going on here? Was the Senator not extremely vetted before he became a Senator? And how come it's now the police is saying he has to come back and properly resign from his employment as a police officer? Hope this is not a cheap way to stop him from further talking or exposing the police department? He is a Nigerian Senator for crying out loud, he's a Senator. We put him there as a Senator and he has the right to talk against corruption and no one should shut him up. Let him talk, let him spill out his guts. Let him tell us what he knows and we are listening, please talk on, let's hear u and what u have to say. And the police department stop telling the public not to believe him because u have no right to tell us who to believe or not believe. If he has a good and truthful story, why not believe him? Stop whispering to our ears who to believe or not because that's not ur job. Let's listen to him and we decide if to believe him or not. Go about ur job, arrest the criminals on the streets, arrest the ritual killers or the killers, PERIOD. Get rid of the kidnappers and the armed robbers and stop telling us who to believe or not. Thank u and be blessed inJesusChristname. As usual, don't forget, accepting Jesus Christ is the key to heart changing and heart changing is the key to system changing that will lead to Nation change and the only changer of hearts is not religion by going to church or mosque nor is it by self effort but by Jesus Christ God's Son who died for us all on Calvary cross. Today Saturday @ 5:48pm.

  4. That's why it's called ZOO REPUBLIC unimaginable funny things always happens

  5. The Inspector General of Police had better provide answers to the serious questions raised by the Senator instead of raising very stupid allegations against the Senator. Oya Mr IGP where are the billions paid monthly by the oil companies and private companies for their security? In whose coffers does the monies go to? Who accounts for them?
