Ex-IGP, Arase denies stealing 19 police vehicles


A former Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, has described as lies claims that 19 assorted vehicles belonging to the Police were recovered from him.

He also said that some ‘forces’ were bent on tarnishing his image, and challenged his critics to make public the number plates of the vehicles and where they were recovered from.

Arase in a statement signed by him on Monday said he would not hesitate to seek legal redress if necessary.

Arase said, “It is embarrassing for me to wake up on Monday morning to be inundated with calls and messages on purported 19 vehicles recovered from me.

“I wish to reassure the general public that there was nothing like that. I did not take any Police vehicle with me outside of what I am entitled to; and so, there couldn’t have been any vehicle recovered from me.

“If there was any such, those behind this campaign should please make the number plates of the vehicles public and where they were recovered from. I urge those behind this campaign to face their official responsibility.”
