IG of police orders Tambuwal arrest

The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Aminu Tambuwal may be arrested over Thursday's crisis at the National Assembly in Abuja, following an order by the Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Suleiman Abba, that the Speaker should be "invited" over the crisis.

But the Force Public Relations Officer, Emmanuel Ojukwu, said, the IGP had yet to give an "express order" for the Speaker's arrest.

Ojukwu said the officers investigating the crisis would determine those to be arrested for prosecution.

According to a PUNCH source, the signal from the IGP's office specifically directed the Federal Capital Territory and Sokoto State commissioners of police to invite Tambuwal and that if he resists, he should be arrested.

"The involvement of Sokoto State Commissioner of Police is likely because the Speaker was in Sokoto yesterday (thursday) to pick the APC's governorship form to contest the 2015 election," the source said.
