How IGP and His Ghanaian Wife Fraudulently Convert an Engineer’s Land in Abuja into an “Old Age Pension”
Documents reviewed by SaharaReporter showed that Nigeria’s Police Inspector General Mohammed Adamu and his wife from Ghana, Aisha, forcibly seized about 50 hectares of land owned by engineer Michael Ayuba of KYC Interproject Limited in Lugbe. Abuja.
It turned out that Adamu used his office to illegally threaten and detain Ayuba, despite a police court order to clear the land.
According to police sources, PGI’s wife, using Ijeom Emerybe as a cover, invaded the aforementioned territory in June 2020.
It became known that three people died as a result of an explosion of welding gas when the police cleared the ground on the orders of Adam.
A disgruntled Ayuba filed a petition with the police, who invited Ijeoma to submit her documents for investigation by Abuja AGIS.
In order to commit fraud, the woman forged some documents after seven weeks, concerning only 62 of the approximately 600 parcels she had previously claimed.
A few weeks later, Sahara Reporter learned that Aisha had invited the engineer to a peaceful meeting, where she informed him that PGI was interested in developing the land.
“PGI’s wife invited Michael Ayuba about five times to discuss with him in the presence of about four people under the pretext of organizing parties, but when Ayuba saw how he was making progress and asked what his interest in this case was, she discovered that she and her the husband is interested in developing the land and that since her husband is about to retire, they need a backup position.
“Since then, it has become a form of intimidation or an order from PGI and his wife to use the police at all levels. Criminal proceedings were instituted against Ijeoma, Ms Aisha Adamu and others, and a court order was filed in Zone 7 to investigate, but IGP took offense at the name of his wife who appeared at the trials and dropped the investigation.
“Michael Ayuba again received an ex parte ruling restricting PGI, MONITORING UNIT, INSP. EDISON and all of their agents are awaiting a complaint before the Magistrates’ General Court No. 3, Vusse 6. PGI ignored the order and arrested Michael Ayuba and, upon learning of the human rights case pending a resolution of fundamental issues in the High Court, he hastily decided to sue to the court with measures to keep him in custody, using a court ready to make proposals, ”his lawyer, Emmanuel Ovoicho, told Sahara Reporters.
It also became known that Adamu had promoted all the officers involved in the case as payment for a job well done.
PGI is expected to retire on February 1, 2021.
Another source familiar with the case said: “I hope all Nigerians see impunity for the current PGI. Let’s fight together in the second stage of #EndSARS for the forced land acquisition by IGP and his wife Aisha Adam.
“Imagine a woman even threatened that if Michael Ayuba was stubborn, they would show him that they were in charge of the police in Nigeria.
“This level of impunity is observed in Nigeria under the administration led by Muhammadu Bukhari, who claims to be waging a war against meanness, gross misconduct and impunity.”
In a 2019 socio-economic rights and accountability survey, the Corruption Perceptions Survey, Nigeria’s police were ranked as the most corrupt government agency in the country, clearly ahead of the energy sector.
According to the survey, “In 54% of calls with the police, a bribe is given. There is a 63% chance of the average Nigerian being asked to pay a bribe every time he interacts with the police. Almost two out of three. “
In August, SaharaReporters denounced a billion dollar fraudulent scheme undertaken by Adam.
PGI used its office to force mobile police commanders to earn millions of naira monthly in illegal ways to establish the Mopol Training School in Endehu, Nasarawa State.
As it became known, the same project was included in the budget of the Nigeria police for 2020, but was rejected by the National Assembly.
But desperate to satisfy his desire, the inspector general of police asked each squadron leader to allocate at least $ 500,000 a month to build various facilities in the training school.
