(Updated) IGP probe: Senate panel suspends hearing indefinitely

The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, on Monday appeared before the Senate ad hoc committee set up to investigate the allegations and counter-allegations between him and Senator Isa Misau.

The IGP was accompanied by his lawyer, Alex Iziyon (SAN) and Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters (Senate), Senator Ita Enang.

Meanwhile, the Senate panel has suspended its investigative hearing on the issues between Misau and the IG sine die.

The police boss and his lawyer pointed out that while the panel would break some provisions of the Senate Standing Rules by going ahead with the probe, it would be subjudice for Idris to answer any questions from the lawmakers.

Iziyon also submitted court papers to the panel, making its members to call for adjournment of the hearing to study the documents.
