Senate, Saraki hold hatred, contempt for me – IGP pleads case before High Court
Inspector-General of Police Ibrahim Idris has described the Senate’s resolution declaring him “an enemy of democracy and unfit to hold any public office within and outside Nigeria,” as an act borne out of “hatred and undisguised contempt” for him.
He made the assertion in an affidavit which he filed before the Federal High Court in Abuja, on Thursday, June 7, seeking permission to file a substantive suit to challenge the resolution of the upper legislative chamber, Punch reports.

The IGP wants the court to declare the Senate’s resolution as invalid; and began the process of suing the upper legislative chamber and its president, Bukola Saraki, by obtaining the court’s leave.
Justice John Tsoho, in granting the leave to Idris on Thursday, said: “I am convinced that the applicant has shown sufficient interest in the issues raised”.
