The Inspector General of Police, Idris Kpotum Ibrahim has been described an “Enemy of Democracy” wh is not fit to hold public office following his refusal to appear before the legislative body.
This development was announced by the Senate President Bukola Saraki after a 50-minute closed-door session.
“The Senate in a closed session deliberated on the non-appearance of the IGP to the Senate to the plenary after a series of invitation. The Senate noted that this has been a gross disrespect to our constituted authority and to also know that his earlier refusal to appear before an investigative committee was overruled by competent court of jurisdiction just in April this year.
The Senate, therefore, views this persistent refusal is a great danger to our democracy and hence the Senate resolved to declare IGP as an enemy of democracy and not fit to hold any public office within and outside Nigeria. The leader of the Senate would also mandate to look into the matter for further necessary action,” Mr Saraki said.
Mr Idris was summoned by the Senate to answer questions on the arrest of a lawmaker, Dino Melaye, and killings across the country.
