The words of words between the Nigeria Police Force [NPF] and Senator Isah Hamman Misau continued on Monday as the police accused him of deserting the force and forging his own retirement letter.
The Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Jimoh O. Moshood, in a statement stated that Senator Misau has been found out to still exist on the officers’ staff list as AP. No 57300 DSP Mohammed Isa Hamman who is still on posting to Niger State Police Command on the 24th September, 2010.
CSP Moshood claimed that “Misau dubiously absconded and deserted the Nigeria Police Force on 24th September, 2010 when he was redeployed to Niger State Command and he refused to report.
He also alleged that “the retirement letter presented to the Journalists by DSP Mohammed Isa Hamman is suspiciously forged and dubiously obtained.”
According to him, “the letter was dated 5th March, 2014, a period of more than Four (4) years after AP No 57300 DSP Mohammed Isa Hamman (Senator Isah Hamman Misau) deserted the Force is now being investigated by the Force.”
He also stated that “AP No 57300 DSP Mohammed Isa Hamman was being wanted as a deserter”.
Moshood argued that since the Senator got suspected forged retirement letter dated 5th March, 2014, this means that for four (4) years, he is still a Police Officer which made it a criminal act for him to contest election as a Police Officer in service and this is another fraud the Police is investigating against him.
“He also perpetrated an act of impersonation by acknowledging the receipt of the suspected forged retirement letter as a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP Hamman Isah) instead of his actual rank of a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) (Ref Suspected fake retirement letter)
“DSP Mohammed Isa Hamman got the suspected forged retirement letter in 2014 but he contested the Bauchi Central Senatorial Election in 2011 General Elections under Action Congress of Nigeria (ACN) at that time he was a Deputy Superintendent of Police and a deserter of the Force.
“This is a clear element and criminal liability of fraud and impersonation, because under the law, you cannot be a Police Officer and still stand for election,” noted Moshood.
“Furthermore, the evidences so far gathered revealed that the suspected forged retirement letter dated 5th March, 2014 which is currently a subject of investigation, was approved within six(6) working days by the Police Service Commission, this is very abnormal as the procedure for processing retirement must have been altered fraudulently.
“The suspicion of the Police on this is that the suspected forged letter was obtained to perpetuate deceit in furtherance of DSP Mohammed Isa Hamman’s fraudulent intentions and this is another reason why the suspected forged letter of retirement being brandished by DSP Mohammed Isa Hamman is being investigated.”
Concerning his allegations against Commissioner of Police, Adamawa State Police Command, CP Moses Jitoboh, Moshood said that Jitoboh “was promoted Commissioner of Police before the current Police Management Team and he is not a Nupe officer but was found to be capable and efficient which was why he was posted as Commissioner of Police, Adamawa State Command.”
Considering all the above, the Force Public Relations Officer said that the police will “seek the prompt consideration of the Senate Ethics and Privileges Committee to prevail on DSP Mohammed Isah Hamman to return to the Nigeria Police Force to face the Force Disciplinary Committee for various acts of serious misconduct, unprofessional wrong doings contrary to discipline, and other discreditable improper behaviours unbecoming of a Police Officer that he was charged with.”
He said that Misau’s allegations against the Inspector General of Police and the Nigeria Police Force are misleading, misrepresentation of facts and concocted, unfounded fallacies aimed at casting aspersions on the renewed commitment of the Nigeria Police Force to ensure law and order and protection of lives and property across the country.
On his part, Senator Misau insisted that the Police PRO did not address the weighty allegations accusing the IGP of cornering N10 billion monthly IGR, taking bribe to post Commissioners of Police to juicy states.
In a statement issued on Monday, he stated that accusations of him deserting the force and forging his own retirement letter are baseless.
He said that the police should address the pertinent issued of “illegal promotions” and “bribery” instead of casting aspersions on his personality and integrity.
