Melaye: Senate Grill IGP Over Alleged Maltreatment Of Lawmaker
Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, is presently being grilled by the Senate over alleged maltreatment of Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye.
Idris, who is being grilled behind closed doors, is expected to answer questions on the arrest, detention and hospitalisation of Senator Melaye.
The embattled Senator last week Tuesday, jumped off the police vehicle that was conveying him to Kogi state and ran into the thick bush with help of some hoodlums but was immediately apprehended by men of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS).
The police is insisting the lawmaker must face trial in Lokoja for alleged gun running.
