President Muhammadu Buhari today met with a delegation from the Senate led by its president, Bukola Saraki, over the allegations levelled against the inspector-general of police, Ibrahim Idris.
The meeting, which held inside the president’s office at Aso Rock, is a result of a decision by the Senate to send a delegation to Buhari over claims by Saraki.
Last week, Saraki told his colleagues that he had been informed of the plot of Idris to set him up.
He noted that the governor of Kwara state, Abdulfatah Ahmed, briefed him that the IGP had ordered the transfer of some murder suspects in Kwara to Abuja.
Saraki alleged that the plot was to make the suspects implicate him in their statement.
Consequently, the senate set up a committee to discus with Buhari.
The committee chaired by Saraki has Ahmad Lawan, senate leader; Olusola Adeyeye, chief whip; Godswill Akpabio, minority leader; Danjuma Goje; a senator from Gombe; Oluremi Tinubu from Lagos, among others as members.
