FG orders Ehindero to vacate IGs residence


Efforts by former Inspector-General of Police, Mr Sunday Gabriel Ehindero to retain the official quarters of the IGP, which he bought while still in service, suffered a setback on Monday, when the Federal Government ordered him to pack out of the residence with immediate effect.

Efforts by former Inspector-General of Police, Mr Sunday Gabriel Ehindero to retain the official quarters of the IGP, which he bought while still in service, suffered a setback on Monday, when the Federal Government ordered him to pack out of the residence with immediate effect.

The house at the Maitama area of Abuja was reported to have been sold to Ehindero for about N120 million and the former police boss was said to have built additional structure with swimming pool inside the premises that reportedly has security gadgets worth over N20 million.

The first indication of trouble over the house came when the acting Inspector-General of Police, Mr Mike Okiro told journalists during a press conference in Abuja that whenever he is ready to move into the quarters, Ehindero must pack out.
The controversial white mansion is on Katsina Ala Crescent, adjacent to the Kenyan High Commission in the Federal Capital Territory.

Daily Sun learnt that after he bought the house, Ehindero demolished a structure close to the access gate, which served as a camp for security details and built a chapel in its place.
The letter ordering Ehindero out of the house, said to have been signed by the Chief of Staff to the President, noted that the sale of the IGP quarters was irregular and unreasonable.

Meanwhile, Ehindero is still being investigated over a multi-million naira scam at the Force Headquarters in Abuja. And the investigators were said to have arrested an Assistant Commissioner of Police, identified as Jelili Ogundeyi, a pay officer who was accused of moving about N354 million for his boss. He was arrested in Lagos and kept in detention in Abuja.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
