The police chief, who was standing near the mounted podium at the event, had saluted the Senate President, preparatory to a handshake as has been the practice, but instead of walking towards Idris to accept the handshake from him, the Senate President steadily looked at him and walked away to shake the service chiefs who were standing together with the IGP.

But the case was different with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, who had arrived at the occasion not only in company of the Senate President, but also walked to the podium to take salutes at the same time.
