In a leaked audio obtained by DAILY NIGERIAN, the chairman of Police Service Commission, Mike Okiro, was heard promising to promote President Muhammadu Buhari’s nephew, Abdulkarim Dauda Daura.
Mr Daura, a deputy commissioner of police, is the son of Mr Buhari’s late elder brother, Dauda Daura.
Mr Daura, who is currently the Chief Personal Security to the President, was allegedly promoted to the rank of Deputy Commissioner of Police by former Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase.
In the audio, Mr Daura was heard begging Mr Okiro for the force Public Relations Officer, Jimoh Moshood, to be promoted to the next rank. Mr Moshood is currently a Chief Superintendent of Police.
“This boy came to me, begging me to talk to you, to plead with you about his promotion.
When Mr Okiro sought to know the “boy”, Mr Daura replied “Jimoh, PPRO, Force PPRO”.
Mr Okiro then said “Ok, Ok, we will work on that.
But the former IGP did not stop there as he promised to promote Mr Daura to the rank of Commissioner of Police.
“Even your own, I am putting you for CP,” Mr Okiro added.
