The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, has appeared before the Senate committee probing allegations of corruption levelled against him by Senator Isa Misau (APC-Bauchi Central).
The IGP was accompanied by his lawyer, Alex Iziyon (SAN), and Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang.
During the hearing, the Police boss refused to comment on the allegations levelled against him, leading to the Senate panel suspending the investigation indefinitely.
The IGP and his lawyer said while the panel would break some provisions of the Senate Standing Rules by going ahead with the probe, it would be sub judice for the police boss to answer any questions from the lawmakers.
Iziyon also submitted court papers to the panel, making the lawmakers to call for adjournment of the hearing to study the documents.
