Misau: IGP appears before Senate, says he he has nothing to hide”

Idris was invited by a senate ad-hoc committee to defend himself over allegations of compromise and corruption.

The Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, has appeared before the Senate committee investigating the allegations of corruption levelled against him by Senator Isa Misau.

Idris is accompanied by members of the Police Management Team and an officer from the public relations department.

"I think that he is best advised to follow the law and ensure that he has nothing to hide by appearing like anyone else before the committee".

The Inspector General of police who had earlier refused to appear before the senate finally appeared on Wednesday, 8 November 2017, after he was threatened with an arrest warrant. Ibrahim Idris told the Senate that he has only appeared before the senate committee out of respect for the rule of law.

The IGP also stressed that the panel's insistence on making references to the issues already in court was against Order 41 (7) and 53 (5) of the Senate Standing Orders 2 (15) as amended.

The chairman of the committee, Francis Alimikhena, noted that the matter was already before the committee before Mr. Idris approached the court.

The committee resolved to adjourn the meeting to thoroughly study the documents before taking further action. He however said there would be no need probing further to get fact about the allegation alleged against him.

The police boss had on Friday confirmed his readiness to appear before the committee. He, however insisted that the letter could not stop the committee from performing its duties in line with sections 88 (1a) and 89 (1c) of the 1999 Constitution.

"Do you know the opinion of the Senate President on this matter?" "In other words, the court is even interfering with affairs of this committee", he said.

He added that getting to the root of the weighty allegations would benefit the government and the Police Force.

The upper legislative chamber set up the committee on October 4, following allegations raised by Isah Misau, senator representing Bauchi central.

Idris had, through a motion ex-parte filed by Izinyon, urged the court to stop the Senate from going ahead with its planned probe on the allegations raised by Senator Misau.
