The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris has been summoned to appear before the senate today to explain his alleged failure to arrest and prosecute the suspected herdsmen who attacked communities in Benue state.
The ultimatum expired on Tuesday.
Senator Joshua Lidani (Gombe-South), on Wednesday, reminded the lawmakers that the ultimatum had expired and the IG had yet to prosecute any suspect.
“You will recall that this Senate passed a resolution when it was considering the report of the Ad Hoc Committee on Security which, among other things, visited Benue State regarding the killings that took place on or about January 1, 2018.
“The Senate clearly resolved that the Inspector-General of Police be given two weeks within which he should identify and arrest those who perpetrated the killings in Benue.
“I therefore will like the Senate President, in line with this resolution, to compel the IG to appear before the Senate to explain why he has not complied with the resolution of the Senate.”
However, President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, expressed displeasure with the police boss’ inaction.
