According to Vanguard, the cars were sent
to Auto Computers located in the Jabi
district of Abuja and that the spare BMW car
has been completed and repainted. The
spare staff car was said to have been
having engine problems for the last five
years before the last administration sent it
for repairs.
A source at Auto Computer said that the
spare car was delivered to the Police
headquarters on Sunday, July 17 in the
afternoon after completion of repairs and
that officials of the company would visit the
Acting IGP to demand for payment of the job
For the armored plated staff car, it was
gathered that because of the new
technology embedded in the car, the
company will need more time to fix the
identified problems of the car as some of

The source also pointed out that nobody
approached Auto Computer to ask about the
whereabouts of the cars, and that since it
was the police that brought them, they

procedure of ascertaining location of the
cars were followed, it was discovered that
the Works Department and the Force
Transport Department that would have been
approached for explanations were not
Rather, the IGP secretariat comprising of
newly posted officers, were said to have
written the former IGP demanding the
whereabouts of the staff cars and other 22
vehicles, some the former IGP was said to
have interpreted as a slight on his person.
Further investigation in other relevant
departments regarding the whereabouts of
other vehicles showed that the vehicles
were intact and that while some were
deployed for operations, the Police had
records of the location of others.

Meanwhile, former IGP, Solomon Arase, has
said it was wrong for his successor to take
the issue to the media, without asking him
He said:
“I suspect there must be a disconnect
somewhere because every information needed
by my successor are provided in my handover
I’m also not aware that any letter was written
to me because if there was any dropped in my
house, someone would have alerted me.
It’s unfortunate that this matter is being made
a media issue because my successor has my
telephone number and could have called me
for any clarification or even sent me a text
message rather than addressing the media on
an issue well documented in my handover
