The Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has appeared before the Senate Committee of Police Affairs and Intelligence after being summoned by the upper legislative chamber on Tuesday.
Mr Idris was hauled before the Senate panel to explain his alleged non-compliance with a resolution by the chamber on the two-week ultimatum to him to arrest and prosecute the herdsmen supposedly behind the brutal murder of over 70 persons in Benue State last month.
The journalists and lower ranks who accompanied Idris to the National Assembly were however dismissed from the venue after the introductory session.
