Senate Threatens To Arrest Inspector General Police?

The Nigerian Senate's adhoc committee investigating various allegations leveled against the Police and the Police Service Commission (PSC), may arrest the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, next week, if he fails to appear before the panel.

Chairman of the adhoc committee, Sen. Francis Alimikhena, said the police chief was summoned on to appear on October 16 before the panel to respond to allegations made against him by Senator Isah Hamman Misau.

Quoting Section 89 of the 1999 Constitution, Alimikhena said nobody, including law courts can stop the Senate from carrying out its constitutional duties. He said the separation of powers guaranteed by law, makes it explicit.

So who will help Senate arrest the IGP? This a developing story.
