We previously reported that the leadership of the National Assembly on Monday, May 7, reported Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris to President Muhammadu Buhari for his failure to appear before the Senate for the second time over the issue of Senator Melaye.

Senate president Bukola Saraki and Dogara confirmed this development to State House correspondents on Monday, May 7, after a closed door meeting with the president in the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Saraki said they raised the issue of Senator Melaye to the president because of the refusal of the IGP to honour Senate’s invitations.
