The Nigerian Senate has summoned the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, to appear before its committees on police affairs and national intelligence for allegedly failing to arrest the perpetrators of the Benue killings.

We learnt that summons followed a 14-day ultimatum the upper chamber handed to the IGP to arrest and investigate the perpetrators of Benue killings, which it said was not adhered to.

The Senate president, Bukola Saraki, during plenary on Wednesday, January 31, said there was need for security agencies to take seriously ultimatums given by the upper chamber.

He said lawmakers will not sweep the Benue killings under the carpet and will ensure that people are made to account over such issues.
