Revealed: How Mike Okiro Converted Police Plaza To His Personal Use In Wuye, EFCC, Others To Grill Him.

By Umar Muhammad

Former Inspector General of Police, Chief Mike Okiro, has converted a property meant for the Nigerian Police Plaza in Wuye, Abuja to his personal property. The landed property was given to the police for a Plaza at Wuye by the Federal Capital Territory Authority (FCTA) when Okiro was the Inspector General of Police between 2007 and 2009.
Okiro since then converted the land to a personal property instead of being put to use by the Nigerian Police Force, the property is located at Mike Okiro’s close, Wuye, Abuja.

The former Police Chief who was sacked some months ago from his position as Police Service Commission Chairman also gave one of the buildings to the Presidential Support Committee PSC headed by the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio to cover up the mess.

A retired AIG who spoke in anonymity said, the Land is for the Nigerian Police Force not Mike Okiro but as at now, it belonged to Okiro because he has converted it to his personal use. He believe the Buhari administration may retrieve it for the benefit of all Police officers.

He further task all relevant agencies especially the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission EFCC, Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Commission ICPC to grill him and all Civil society groups should raise up to this challenge of public officers acquiring public properties.

As of the time of filing this report, Mike Okiro did not take his calls nor respond to text messages hence all efforts to reach him proved abortive.
