The Senate has reacted to the charges filed by the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris against Senator Isah Misau (APC-Bauchi Central), bordering on alleged forgery.
Chairman, Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions, Senator Sam Anyanwu (PDP-Imo East), told newsmen that irrespective of the charges against Misau, it will continue with the investigation of the allegations leveled against Idris by Misau.
When Anyanwu was asked by journalists on Wednesday if his committee would go ahead with the investigation, as the AGF had filed a suit against Misau on behalf of the IGP, his reply was: “the committee or the Senate is not a party to the suit.”
The Senate had on October 4, 2017, resolved to probe Misau’s allegations bordering on corruption and misconduct against Idris.
The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, also called for investigation into the circumstances surrounding Misau’s disengagement from the Nigeria Police force.
The committee was given two weeks to carry out the investigation.
