Melaye: Why Nigerian Police IG Shunned Senate Again

IGP Idris Ibrahim

The Nigerian police has given a reason why the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Ibrahim Idris again failed to appear in person before the Senate today.

The senate had last Thursday during plenary summoned the IGP after he failed to honour a previous invitation to brief it on the circumstances surrounding the arrest of Dino Melaye, the Senator representing Kogi West and killings taking place in the country.

However, for the second time, IGP Idris refused to appear before the house.

Giving reason for his inability to appear before the house, the police in a statement said: “IGP Ibrahim K. Idris, NPM, mni and GOC 1 Division Kaduna, Gen. Mohammed Mohammed, visit[ed] Birnin Gwari, Kaduna State to assess security needs of the people.”
