The Nigerian Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Solomon Arase, has disclosed that Senate leaders Bukola Saraki and Ike Ekweremadu have no immunity against being investigated.
The Police Chief on Tuesday, dismissed a suit filed by Senator Gilbert Nnaji (PDP/Enugu East), seeking to stop the police from investigating the alleged forgery of the 2015 Senate Standing Order, as ridiculous, laughable and mere waste of time of the court.
While responding to the suit via a counter-affidavit, the IGP said no court of law in country has powers to stop the force from performing its statutory functions of investigating crimes.
Arasa argued that the principal officers of the Senate have no constitutional or statutory immunity from investigation.
The police boss urged the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, to dismiss the suit for want of jurisdiction, adding that investigating the allegation of forgery in the Senate could only strengthen the integrity of the upper legislative house and its leadership.
