The Senate will on next week Tuesday grill the acting Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Mr. Mohammed Adam, over the state of insecurity in the country.
The IGP, who is expected to brief lawmakers in plenary, will explain to the senators how he intends to tackle the rising case of kidnapping and other violent crimes across the country.
It was gathered that the briefing would be held behind closed doors, to enable the police boss to speak freely.
President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, while announcing it at the end of yesterday’s plenary, said a letter had already been written to the IGP to appear when it reconvenes on Tuesday.
On April 25, the Senate summoned Adamu, following a motion sponsored by Shehu Sanitation and 108 lawmakers. It had noted that the north was now the nation’s killing field, where bandits and other criminal elements hold sway.
