Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, may have caused a clarification over the allegation that police plan to arrest deputy senate president, Ike Ekweremadu for purportedly forging senate standing rules. The news media were awash yesterday, Sunday, with reports of the said police invite to Ekweremadu. In a tweet, Monday, the Police say they “received a petition from a Senator alleging unauthorized substitution of Senate document, (and) the matter was referred to Force CIID Abuja for investigation”.
“In line with the policy of the Police leadership of gathering evidence before invitation, a letter was sent to the Clerk of National Assembly to facilitate a meeting of some principal Senate members/Clerk with Police investigating team headed by DIG FCIID at their convenient time and venue.” The police say there are “no plans to arrest Deputy Senate President as NPF have healthy respect for democratic values.”
