IG Of Police Summoned Over Alleged Forgery Of Senate Standing Order

share on:

A Federal High Court sitting in Abuja has summoned the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Solomon Arase, to appear before it on Tuesday to answer questions on the ongoing investigation into the alleged forgery of the Senate Standing Order 2015.

The Judge in charge of the sitting, Justice Gabriel Kolawole, in his ruling requested Arase’s presence in the court on August 4 to give reasons why the prayers sought by the plaintiff in his ex parte application should not be granted.

Kolawole gave the directive while ruling on an ex parte application by the senator representing Enugu-East Senatorial District, Gilbert Nnaji, seeking to restrain the IGP and the Attorney-General of the Federation from taking further steps on the investigation of alleged forgery in the Senate’s rules.

Rather than granting Nnaji’s prayer, Kolawole ordered the IG to appear in court on Tuesday to tell the court why it should not grant the request contained in the plaintiff’s ex parte motion.
