    IGP In Closed-Door Meeting With Senators but benue killing

    The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, is currently at the Senate in a closed-door meeting with the Joint Committee on Police Affairs and Intelligence.

    The Police boss is appearing before the committee to explain his alleged non-compliance with a 14-day ultimatum given to him to arrest and prosecute the herdsmen suspected to have killed over 70 persons in Benue State.
    Reporters and lower rank Police officers who accompanied Idris were reportedly dismissed from the venue after the introductory session.
    The Senate,  on Wednesday, summoned the IGP to explain the steps taken by the Police to prevent further killings in Benue State.
    Senate President, Bukola Saraki, had earlier read a letter from President Muhammadu Buhari, explaining the steps taken after the killings in the state.
    The Senate Committee on Police and National Intelligence were mandated to invite the IGP after Senator Joshua Lidani, from Gombe State, raised a point of order calling the attention of the Senate to the continuous killing in Benue State despite the 14-day ultimatum given to the IG of Police.
