Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase also stated that the police had a duty to investigate any case brought to them.
Inspector-General of Police, Solomon Arase, has said that the recent invitation of Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu for questioning was not politically motivated.
Arase also stated that the police had a duty to investigate any case brought to them.
The Police IG made the comments while speaking to journalists at the State Police Command headquarters in Bauchi.
“One of the statutory duties of the police is to investigate any case brought before us. That is exactly what we are trying to do — to investigate a complaint that has been brought to us. I am a police officer in total, I am not a politician,” he said, adding, however, that the investigation was ongoing.
Ekweremadu is being investigated by the police after he was accused of altering the Senate Standing Rules on the process of electing principal officers.
