Senate orders probe of IGP over alleged corruption

Lawmaker representing Bauchi central senatorial district, Senator Isa Misau, has asked the senate to probe the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, over alleged corrupt practices and misconduct.

Misau, while raising a point of order at the plenary, reiterated his earlier allegations against Idris, including the IGP’s recent alleged secret marriage to a serving policewoman against the public service rule.

The law maker urged the senate to set up an ad-hoc committee to investigate his allegations against Idris, saying that he would provide documentary evidence before the panel.

While the request was approved by the lawmakers, President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, said members of the panel would be announced later in the day.
