Senate Summons IG Over River State Crisis

The Senate has summoned the Inspector-General of Police, Muhammed Abubakar to appear before it over the crisis in Rivers State.

The Senate took the decision following a debate on a motion brought by Wilson Ake from Rivers State on the disruption and obstruction of political gatherings by the police.

He said the disruption of peaceful gathering by the police in the state would create anxiety and lead to further loss of confidence in the security system.

The debate led to a rowdy session after Senators James Manager and George Sekibo opposed the motion on the grounds that those who were asked to visit Senator Magnus Abe have not sent in their report.

In his ruling, Senate President cautioned all parties to the crisis in Rivers.
