The spokesman of the Nigerian Police, CSP Jimoh Moshood, on Friday in a statement said the panel is to investigate the allegations credited to the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Navy, Senator Isah Hamma Misau as reported.

He said the Special Investigation Panel has consequently upon the directive of the IGP invited Senator Isah Hamma Misau to a meeting to shed more lights and provide more details to the Panel.
