Dr. Bukola Saraki, the President of the Senate, on Thursday, said that the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, must appear before the panel probing the allegations against him by Senator Isah Misau, the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Navy.
Mr. Idris failed to appear on Wednesday before the Senate Ad-Hoc Committee investigating the allegations against him and the Police Service Commission by Senator Misau on the ground that the case was before a court.
Senator Francis Alimikhena, the Chairman of the Senate Probe Panel, while briefing the Senate on the absence of the Police boss, said that he (IGP) has been given next Tuesday to appear before the panel.
While responding Senate President Saraki said that Mr. Idris as a Chief law enforcement officer should know the law better and should better appear before the panel.
“The Deputy Chief Whip, you have given the IG another date to appear before you. Feed us back on the outcome of that on Tuesday. Saraki said.
“As the chief law enforcing officer, one will expect that he should know what the law is and he should know that there have been many judgements in this case and that they cannot stop the Senate from doing its job.
“I think that he is best advised to follow the law and ensure that he has nothing to hide. And come and appear like anyone else before the committee.” He added
