Idris also accused some of the retired Deputy Inspector-Generals of Police (DIG) of running off with cars of the force.

His word, “A week before I was announced, when you look through my office window, you could see so many cars. But the cars all disappeared when I came in.

“What I did was to assign a directive to the Special Investigative Unit, SFU, for them to investigate all vehicles’ purchases and donations to the police in the last three years.
“When I took over, there were no vehicles. I discovered that the last IG went away with 24 vehicles, including two BMWs.

“The DIGs took seven, others eight. And they left me with an old vehicle. Even the one I follow the President with the last time I went for an engagement, the President asked what I was doing with that kind of vehicle.

“The headlight has changed colour, which means it was parked for long under the rain. But the new ones that were bought, including an Armoured BMW 7 series, he took them away. So, I wrote to him and reminded him of the need to return the vehicles.

“When a policeman retires as IG, DIG, AIG or CP he is entitled to some vehicles. And so, he should take his entitlement and return the extra. I believe four vehicles are enough for an average person. What does one need 24 vehicles for?”
