IGP To Senators: I Won’t Answer Your Questions

Following heated arguments at the Senate on Wednesday when the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, appeared before the ad-hoc committee investigating allegations of corruption leveled against him by Senator Isah Misau, the committee sitting was adjourned indefinitely.

The IGP, who has a running battle with Misau, representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District, refused to answer any of the questions posed to him by the investigative panel, insisting that the matter is before the court.

His reticent posturing, ably supported by his lawyer, Alex Iziyon (SAN), saw the committee bowing out and adjourning indefinitely after a lengthy exchange.

The committee, through its Chairman, Francis Alimekhena had threatened to issue a warrant of arrest against the IGP last week for earlier failing to appear before it, declaring that the police boss must unfailingly appear on Wednesday.

But the committee became incapacitated as the IGP, who appeared before it along with his lawyer seemed to intimidate the committee into forced adjournment of the session on the grounds that the issues for which he was invited are already subjects of litigation.
