The inspector-general of police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, who was summoned by the senate over the allegations that Dino Melaye, senator representing Kogi west was maltreated, has failed to appear before the senate the second time in one week.
He is also expected to brief the lawmakers on the killings in different parts of the country.
He was earlier scheduled to appear before the senate last week, but sent a representative as he accompanied President Muhammadu Buhari to Bauchi.
This made the legislators angry and they asked him to appear unfailingly on Wednesday but Idris sent Joshak Habilah, deputy inspector-general, to represent him.
He gave an excuse that he was in Kaduna state on an official assignment regarding insecurity.
Ahmad Lawan, leader of the senate, and Abu Ibrahim, chairman of the senate committee on police affairs, were directed to convey the red chamber’s displeasure to Idri as he was re-summoned.
