Senate: Reps to declare IGP unfit for public office

As a show of solidarity, the House of Representatives may this week concur with the position of the Senate by passing a resolution declaring the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, unfit to hold public office.

The Senate, last week, declared the IGP incompetent and unfit to hold any office and should be sacked from his position.

A few days ago, the Senate reeled out a list of killings in the country since January 2018, to buttress its insistence that the IGP has failed in his responsibilities.

New Telegraph reliably gathered that the second chamber, the House of Representatives, will on resumption tomorrow, sponsor a motion to concur with the Senate position and call on President Muhammadu Buhari to relieve Idris of his duties.

A member of the group of lawmakers behind the historic motion told New Telegraph correspondent in confidence that the House leadership and all members of the House were worried that the IGP has become untouchable and his antics pose a threat to democracy.
