IG’s Failure To Attend Security Briefing A Threat To Democracy, Saraki Says




President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki, has said that the failure of the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, to show up for security briefing on the killings across the country is a threat to democracy.

Saraki made this known in a tweet via the verified Twitter handle, The Senate President.

The Senate had invited Idris to come and brief it on the killings in the country, but, for the second time in less than a week, the IG had declined to make physical appearance.

Last Thursday when he was supposed to appear before the Senate, he sent a Deputy IG, Joshak Habila, and went on a state visit with President Buhari to Bauchi.


The Senate refused to entertain Habila, insisting on having the IG.

On Wednesday (today), the IG sent Habila again, but the lawmakers condemned the action, saying it could jeopardise democracy.
