Benue killings: Senate rejects panel’s pro-IG report, demands Ortom’s input | Nigerian News. Latest Nigeria News. Your online Nigerian Newspaper. f

The Senate has stepped down a report by its joint Committee on Police Affairs and National Security and Intelligence, saying it is ‘one-sided.’

At the plenary on Wednesday, senators who spoke on the report presented by the chairman of the panel, Senator Abu Ibrahim, said it only had the submissions of the Inspector General of Police, Mr. Ibrahim Idris, who made a series of allegations against Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State.

President of the Senate, Bukola Saraki, ruled that the report be stepped down, while the panel should meet with Ortom and report back within one week.

The panel was set up to investigate efforts by the Police to end the killings in Benue State.
