The Police IG made the comments while speaking to journalists at the State Police Command headquarters in Bauchi.

Arase said:

“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.
