The ad hoc committee set up to probe the allegations and counter-allegations between the lawmaker representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District, Senator Isa Misau, and the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on Thursday reported the police boss to the Senate for ignoring calls to appear before them.
The ad hoc committee had already complained about the matter, saying they might issue an arrest warrant.
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, asked the committee chairman, Senator Francis Alimikhena to report back to the chamber on whatever happens on the new date, while asking Idris to obey the law and appear before the panel.
He said, “As the chief law enforcement officer, who we expect to know what the law is, should know that there are judgments that clearly state that such cannot stop the Senate from doing its job and I think that he is best advised to follow the law and ensure that he has nothing to hide, and come and appear like anyone else before the committee.
“So, report back to us next Tuesday on the outcome of that.”
