Responding to questions on whether the committee would continue with the probe, as the AGF had filed a suit against Misau on behalf of the IGP, he said, “the committee or the Senate is not a party to the suit.”

Naija News recalls that the Senate had on October 4, 2017 concluded to investigate Misau’s accusations on corruption and misconduct against Idris.

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, also directed that the committee probe into the circumstances surrounding Misau’s dismissal from the Nigeria Police.
