Dambazau blames ex-IGP Idris for strained ties between police, interior ministry

Abdulrahman Dambazau, minister of interior, has blamed Ibrahim Idris, former inspector-general of police (IGP), for the strained relationship between the police and his ministry.

The minister was speaking on Tuesday in Abuja when Mohammed Adamu, acting IGP, paid him a courtesy visit.

Dambazzau said the ministry enjoyed a cordial relationship with the police during the tenure of Solomon Arase, a former IGP, but it went sour when Idris took over.

He said the ministry had presented 25 memoranda to the federal executive council (FEC) for deliberations, but none included the police.

“We are happy that you took this step because since early 2016, shortly after I came in as Minister in November 2015, I had a very cordial relationship with the then IGP, Solomon Arase, but when Arase left, there was the severance of relations between the police and the ministry of interior,” the minister said.
