For the second time in the row, the Inspector General of Police has failed to honour the invitation of the Senate of the killings in Nigeria and the arrest of Senator Dino Melaye.
The IGP had failed to show up on Thursday, April 26, 2018, following his trip to Bauchi on a state visit with President Muhammadu Buhari.
This time, the IGP gave no reason for his absence at the Senate on Wednesday, May 2, 2018.
Speaking at plenary, Katsina lawmaker, Abu Ibrahim said he could not reach the IGP to remind him of his summon.
Senate President Bukola Saraki had raised a similar point on last week.
“I tried yesterday to reach the IG, but unfortunately, I couldn’t reach him,” Ibrahim began.
“After the last sitting when it was directed that the IGP should come, the Clerk to the Senate wrote to the IGP. I met the DIG who was sent by the IG at the office of the Presidential Adviser to the National Assembly Matters and we implored the DIG to make sure that the IGP honours the invitation of the Senate today at 11a.
“Personally, I tried to reach him yesterday but couldn’t up to late in the night. Later, I found out that that IGP is in Kaduna where he will be going to Brinin-Gwari where there were killings,” he added.
