Abubakar-IGPThe Senate has summoned the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Mohammed Abubakar, to appear before it on Tuesday, February 11th.

Senate Leader, Senator Ndoma-Egba said that the appearance of the police chief was sequel to the resolution of the Senate that he should appear to tell the lawmakers what he knew about the protracted political crisis in Rivers State.

However, it was learnt that the resolution was necessitated by the report of the Senate Committee on Police Affairs, which probed the alleged shooting of the Senator representing Rivers South East, Magnus Abe, by the police at a rally organized by the Save Rivers Movement last month in Port Harcourt.

Findings showed that the committee report punctured the Rivers Police Command’s claim that the Nigeria Police does not use rubber bullets – in apparent defense against the allegation that it shot the senator with rubber bullets.

Meanwhile, it is not yet known whether the IGP’s submission will be made open to the public or at a closed door session.
