The Senate has summoned the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to explain the steps taken to prevent further killings in Benue state.
Lawmakers in the upper chambers of the nation’s National Assembly took the decision after Senate President Bukola Saraki read a letter from President Muhammadu Buhari, explaining the steps taken after the January killings in the State.
After the letter was read, 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.
The Senate Committees on Police and National Intelligence were mandated to invite the IG and report back next week Tuesday.
