Senate Summons IG Idris Over Dino Melaye

The Nigerian Senate on Wednesday summoned the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris to appear before the plenary on Thursday. Mr Idris is to appear by 11 a.m.
He said the IGP will be required to answer question on the arrest of embattled Senator Dino Melaye, as well concerning recent insecurity challenges facing the nation.
Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki said the invitation was necessary as he had not been able to reach Mr Idris for some days.
The Senate President also requested the session be aired live.
The Senate thereafter adjourned plenary to enable all the lawmakers to visit Mr Melaye.
