For the third time in two weeks, the Senate has summoned the Inspector General of Police (IG) , Mr. Ibrahim Idris, to appear before it over the rising insecurity in different parts of the country.
The Senate also summoned security chiefs over the proliferation of arms, which it said is aiding criminality.
The President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, while speaking on the security situation in the country at plenary Tuesday, said Idris is expected to appear on Wednesday.
Idris is also expected to brief the lawmakers on the maltreatment of Senator Dino Melaye, who was arrested and arraigned by the police at the Federal High Court Abuja, and at the Magistrate’s Court in Lokoja.
The IG on two occasions had shunned Senate’s summons, and sent the Deputy Inspector General of Operation, Mr. Habila Joshack, to represent him.
The senators had however refused to admit Joshack into the chambers.
