The Senate President, Senator Bukola Saraki and the Speaker of House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara on Monday urged President Muhammadu Buhari to compel the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris to obey the laws of Nigeria.
Both presiding officers of the National Assembly had earlier met with Buhari at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
Speaking with State House Correspondents after the closed-door session, both presiding officers of NASS condemned the treatment allegedly meted on Kogi West Senator, Dino Melaye.
They described the arraignment of Melaye on stretcher as “barbaric and uncivilised,” stressing that there was nowhere in the world that people were arraigned on a stretcher, even criminals.
Both officers also said the 2018 budget report will be laid and passed this week.
