#AnambraDecides: Senate Gives IGP 24-Hrs To Restore Obiano’s Aides
The Senate has directed the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr Ibrahim Idris to restore the security aides of Gov. Willie Obiano of Anambra within 24 hours.
The directive was sequel to a Point of Order raised by Deputy Minority Leader, Sen. Emmanuel Bwacha during plenary in Abuja.
The Upper Chamber also directed the Chairman Senate Committee on Police Affairs, Sen. Abu Ibrahim to ensure that the order was carried out and report back to the Senate on Thursday, November 16.
The IGP had on Tuesday withdrawn Obiano’s security aides on the excuse of providing level playing ground in Saturday’s governorship polls in the state.
Bwacha described the withdrawal of the governor’s aides as unjust.
“As a senator, I know that injustice anywhere is injustice everywhere. If we don’t arrest the matter the President may be made hostage unknown to him."
The Senate President, Dr Bukola Saraki, also described the development as unfortunate.
