The senate has declared the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris as unfit to hold public office and a danger to Nigeria’s democracy
This decision was reached after a close door session following the refusal of the police boss to appear before the lawmakers again to brief the senate on the rampant killings in the country and the inhumane treatment of Senator Dino Melaye.
The Upper chamber had on three occasions summoned the IG to appear before the Legislators to discuss the issue of insecurity in the country and as well as the handling of the case against Senator Dino Melaye.
The police boss had previously sent a Deputy inspector General of police in his stead a move that angered the lawmakers who insisted he has to be present in person.
After the non appearance of the IGP in plenary on Wednesday, the upper chamber resolved to go into a close door session to decided the next line of action.
Earlier, while reacting to the absence of the IG, the lawmakers described his actions as unacceptable and a total disregard for the institution of the national assembly
After over thirty minutes of deliberation behind close doors, here is what they resolved.
In the meantime, While addressing the Senate Press Corps, the Senate Spokesman, Senator Aliyu Sabi explained that finishing touches are being made before the 2018 appropriation bill presented next week
Sitting was adjourned till next week Tuesday the 15th of may 2018
