Senator Misau following the allegations levelled against him of corruption, nepotism, misuse of office illegal promotion and misappropriation of funds by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, Chairman, Senate Committee on Navy, Senator Isah Hamman Misau, is to appear before the Senate Adhoc Committee to formally present his petition.
Senator Misau (APC Bauchi Central), who will appear before the Committee at 2 pm tomorrow Tuesday 24th, is expected to address the committee as well as give answers to questions from members.
While speaking with Vanguard yesterday, Chairman of the Adhoc Committee and Deputy Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Francis Alimikhena (APC, Edo North), made a statement saying, “Senator Isah Hamman Misau will appear before the committee on Tuesday to answer to questions that will come up after his presentation and, thereafter, we take the next line of action.”
The Senate set up a committee to begin a holistic probe into allegations of corruption, nepotism, and misuse of office against the former. The Senate is also investigating Idris on alleged misappropriation of funds, illegal promotion, posting of senior officers and claims that he impregnated a female police officer.
With regards to this, Senate President, Bukola Saraki, constituted an eight-member Adhoc Committee to probe the Inspector- General of Police and the issues raised and report back soon to the Senate at plenary. The committee set up has the Deputy Chief Whip of the Senate, Senator Francis Alimikhena (APC, Edo North) as chairman.
Recall that we had earlier reported that IGP Ibrahim Idris had asked Senate not to probe him.
