SAN FRANCISCO, July 05, (THEWILL)  – The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Solomon Arase, has invited Senator Ike Ekweremadu (PDP, Enugu), the Deputy President of the Senate, to force headquarters Abuja for questioning, over allegations of forgery of the Senate Rules.

PDP National Publicity Secretary, Chief Olisa Metuh, made the development public to journalists in Abuja during a briefing.

He said Ekweremadu would honour the invitation on Monday.

A faction of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) at the Senate had alleged that the leadership of the 7th Senate, where Senator David Mark and Ekweremadu served as President and Deputy President of the Senate, illegally altered the Senate Rule to allow the PDP, which is now the minority party in the 8th Senate, occupy the Deputy Senate position.
