Police transfer NASS DPO to Adamawa over mace theft, IGP/Senate row


The Chief Superintendent of Police, Abdul Sulu-Gambari, who is the Divisional Police Officer, DPO, for the National Assembly Police Division, is set to resume at the Adamawa State Police Command, Yola.

This development is coming on the heels of his graphic presentation before the NASS investigating panel, on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, of how thugs, allegedly in the company of Senator representing Delta Central District, Ovie Omo-Agege, invaded the National Assembly on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, to steal the Senate mace.

The panel was headed by Bala Ibn Na Allah.

Whereas there were insinuations that the Police was handling the investigation into the mace theft in a manner that suggested a cover-up, sources close to the NASS panel informed Sunday Vanguard that Sulu-Gambari’s disclosures further poured cold water on any doubt that there was complicity.

Sulu-Gambari, a blue-blooded prince of Ilorin Emirate, appears “to be a victim of the power play going on between the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Kpotun Idris, and the Senate leadership”, a source privy to the development disclosed.

His replacement has already been made and is expected to align appropriately in the on-going power show.
