The International Society for Civil Liberties and the Rule of Law (Intersociety) has described the appointment of Abubakar Mohammed Adamu, another Northern Muslim from Lafia, Nasarawa State, North-central Nigeria, as the Inspector-General of Police, is a slap on the face of Igbo Nation.

The intersociety added that the appointment of a muslim Northerner was also a shame for Buharists in Southeast Nigeria including the Southeast Governors in general and Govs William Obiano and Dave Umahi of Anambra and Ebonyi States in particular.

In a statement signed by the Chairman, Board of Trustees of the group, Mr Emeka Umeagbalasi, Intersociety said  the development proved that the position of the Igbo Nation in the country’s scheme of things in post 2019 election Nigeria is irreversibly doomed and darkened.
 
The statement read. “It is also our position that the appointment of Police AIG Abubakar Adamu Muhammed, another Northern Muslim from Lafia LGA of Nasarawa State, North-central Nigeria is not only a slap on the face of Igbo Nation, but also the Buharists in Southeast Nigeria including the Southeast Govs in general and Govs William Obiano and Dave Umahi of Anambra and Ebonyi States in particular should go and bury their faces in shame.

“If such brazen regional isolation in the country’s top security architecture could repeatedly be manifested and cemented in this crucial national election campaign period, then the position of the Igbo Nation in the country’s scheme of things in post 2019 election Nigeria is irreversibly or intractably doomed and darkened.

The intersociety said the appointment of the new IGP came two days after its publication where it reported that out of the country’s  twenty two top security and justice establishments and their headships, 18 are held by the North and four by the South; out of which nineteen are Muslims with only three Christians.

The intersociety said none of the 22 top securitization posts is allocated to the Southeast.  In the list of 31 serving Police AIGs as at 31st December 2018, 23 are held by the North and 8 by the South; out of which 22 are Muslims and 9 are Christians with only one Police AIG given to the Southeast who will retire on 12th August 2019.

The intersociety further alleged that Ibrahim Idris, stayed 12 illegal days after his stated date of retirement, on 3rd January 2019 adding that he must refund public funds spent in his “illegal 12 Days In Office.”

The Intersociety urged the Federal Government of Nigeria to thoroughly and conclusively investigate former IGP Ibrahim Idris over the subject matter and recover all public funds including overheads and operational costs as well as paraphernalia allowances, personal earnings and other illegitimately authorized expenditures; cumulatively authorized and spent by former IGP.
