Senate Summons IGP Ibrahim Idris Again

By Ikenga Chronicles July 5, 2018

The Senate has invited the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, over the killing of seven Police officers in Abuja by unknown gunmen.

This was revealed on Thursday by the Chairman of the Committee on Police Affairs, Abu Ibrahim.

Senate President, Bukola Saraki had sympathised with the police over the death of 7 Police officers who were gunned down in Abuja on Monday.

“While also talking in that light, I observe that we have not taken this issue of the SARS Police officers that were killed on Monday in Galadimawa Junction.

“I think as a National Assembly, as much as we pay attention to ordinary citizens that lose their lives either by one action or inaction of the Police, we all should be seen to also protect and be there for those that protect our lives.

“I’ll like us to please find out what happened as regards to these seven Police officers that were killed, the circumstances and how we can also show our commiseration with the families as well as whatever needs to be done so that Police officers and all of them know that we do care and appreciate what they are doing. Please let us have a report by next week,” Saraki said.

“The Committee on Police Affairs invited the IG to brief us on these killings and what happened in Maiduguri and it is going to be on Tuesday,” he said.

Saraki, however, mandated the Chairman of the Committee on Police to report back to the Senate next week.
