The Inspector-General of Police, IBRAHIM IDRIS has filed a suit before the FCT High Court seeking an order restraining the Senate and Senate President BUKOLA SARAKI from going ahead with their plan to investigate allegations of malpractices against him.
A federal lawmaker, representing Bauchi Central Senatorial District, ISAH MISAU had alleged, among others, that the IG collected about N10bn monthly from some firms and highly-placed Nigerians for giving them security cover.
MISAU, a former police officer before being elected to the Senate, on August 25 also accused IBRAHIM IDRIS of granting fraudulent promotions to undeserving police operatives.
He had argued that the level of corruption being perpetrated by IDRIS was so alarming and capable of undermining the anti-corruption stance of President MUHAMMADU BUHARI.
However, the IG had denied these allegations while the Force Headquarters accused ISAH MISAU of leaving the force with forged retirement papers.
