I did not cart away 24 cars, my successor is telling lies- ex-IGP Arase

Against allegations made by his successor, the immediate-past Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase, has denied taking away 24 police vehicles.
Arase described the allegations made by current Acting IGP, Ibrahim Idris, as lies.
Speaking on Monday,  the ex-IGP also denied getting any letter from Idris after leaving office, adding that he (Arase) had been in the United Kingdom since his retirement.
He
disclosed that all information needed by Idris regarding vehicles purchased by the police, were in his handover notes.
He said all vehicles bought by the police under him were distributed to the state commands and other appropriate units of the Nigeria Police Force.
He lamented that the issue had now become a media frenzy when his successor could have easily called him.
The clarification was made in a statement which Arase signed from the UK, where he said he had traveled to for his son's graduation.
Arase's statement read in part: "I suspect there must be a  disconnect somewhere because the information needed by my successor are provided in my handover notes. I'm also not aware that any letter was written to me because if there was any, dropped in my house, someone would have alerted me.
"It's unfortunate that this matter is being made a media issue because my successor has my telephone number and could have called me for any clarification or even sent me a text message rather than addressing the media on an issue well documented in my handover notes."
Idris had claimed that Arase carted away 24 police vehicles upon his retirement, while the seven Deputy Inspectors-General of Police, who retired alongside him, also carted away between seven and eight cars each.
