The Senate has set up an ad-hoc committee to investigate allegations of corruption and misconduct brought against the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris by Senator Isa Misau (APC-Bauchi Central).
This committee was set up after Misau raised a point of order that Idris allegedly impregnated and married a female police officer, which he said is against the rule of the Police Service Commission (PSC).
Misau said he would provide documentary evidence before the panel to back up his allegations against Idris.
The lawmaker had recently alleged that the police collect about N120bnannually from corporate organisations and ‘very important personalitiess’ for security services, an allegation he made again on the floor of the Senate.
After the request was approved by the lawmakers, Senate President Bukola Saraki said members of the panel would be announced later in the day.
