The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Kpotun Idris has failed to honour the invitation extended to him to appear before the Senate for the second time.
IGP Idris was invited to explain the case surrounding the inhuman treatment given to the Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial district, Senator Dino Melaye and other security challenges in the country.
The police boss was not seen at the Senate plenary for the second time and up till now, there has been no statement from his office to that effect.
However, many lawmakers expressed their anger and concern on the direction the country is headed and wondered why the Police boss will fail to honour the invitation of the Senate.
According to the Deputy Senate leader, Bala Ibn’Nallah, IGP Idris action was quite disappointing and embarrassing.
“We need to assist my President because the way things are going, it’s quite embarrassing. Senate is aware of its powers.” he said
Senate President, Dr.Bukola Saraki in his submission pleased with the Lawmakers to have patience and mandated the Senate Committee on Police affairs to ensure that the police boss appears in the next plenary.
Nigeria Senate Says
“The IG has said that he cannot come. He wants to delegate it to a junior to come. Since we returned to democracy, there has been no IG that has refused to come. He is doing this and this is a threat to our democracy. It is not only to us, it is also to the President”
