The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun, has ordered the withdrawal of police officers attached to former governors Timipre Sylva, Gbenga Daniel, Rochas Okorocha, and former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, amongst other Nigerians.
In a recent signal from the Force Headquarters dated July 12 and seen by Peoples Gazette, IGP Egbetokun withdrew police orderlies attached to former governors, senators, ministers, family members of former President Muhammadu Buhari, and some politically-exposed persons across Nigeria.
Those on the list include former Imo governor Ikedi Ohakim; former cabinet secretary to President Buhari, Boss Mustapha; former Bauchi governor Adamu Mu’Azu; former Imo governor Rochas Okorocha; former Gombe governor Danjuma Goje; former Ogun governor Gbenga Daniel; and former Zamfara governor, Bello Matawalle.
Others are former police affairs minister Maigari Dingyadi; former petroleum minister Timipre Sylva; former senator Haliru Jika; former budget minister Clem Ikanade Agba; former Peoples Democratic Party chairman Iyorchia Ayu; former House member Rabiu Lawan and former senator Stephen Adey.
According to Gazette, the memo also directed the withdrawal of security aides from other people without specifically providing their full names.
The signal only described others to be deprived of personal as a former science and technology minister, former National Assembly clerk, a former power minister, a brother to Aisha Buhari, and a brother to former President Buhari, who was only identified as Daura.
However, checks on Sunday did not indicate that even the latest July 12 written directive had been complied with, as some of the politicians said their orderlies had not been withdrawn.
