The Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, says he is ready to honour the invitation of the ad hoc committee set up by the Senate to probe the allegations levelled against him by the lawmaker representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District, Senator Isa Misau.
The police boss made his position known while addressing newsmen in Abuja, adding that he would appear before the panel as a mark of respect for the Senate.
The committee had, on Thursday, reported the police boss to the Senate over his non-appearance.
While Idris failed to appear before the committee on Wednesday, he wrote through his lawyer, Mr Alex Iziyon, informing the panel that his appearance would be sub judice as there were pending cases in court on the matter.
Following a meeting with the President, Muhammadu Buhari, he said he was consulting with his legal team on his appearance.
“These are legal issues. We are discussing with our legal team. Obviously, if there is a need, we are going to appear for the sake of having respect for the Senate. I will appear before them,” he stated.
Furthermore, the IGP explained that his mission to the Presidential Villa was to brief the President on some security challenges confronting the country and how he was fixing them.
He also noted that part of the discussion bordered on the upcoming election in Anambra State and the increased rate of kidnapping in parts of the country.
