Dino Melaye: Senate grills IGP, Idris behind closed-doors

Idris, who arrived the National Assembly was ushered into the senate chamber after it was closed to the public at 11:07 am.

Following Melaye’s ordeal, the senate had summoned Idris for questioning last week.

The police boss, however, shunned the invitation, a situation leadership of the Upper Legislative chamber frowned at.
