Ipid head Robert McBride

EWN has revealed that McBride suspects a team of detectives from the North West province were planning the arrest.

The police have denied claims of the imminent arrest of Ipid head Robert McBride and several of his senior officials.

Eye Witness News revealed that McBride suspects a team of detectives from the North West province were planning the arrest.

EWN also revealed last year that the team of North West detectives were investigating Ipid and were also responsible for the unlawful arrest of Paul O’Sullivan, who is a complainant in former acting national police commissioner Khomotso Phahlane's corruption case.

McBride believes recent high profile arrests - including that of Phahlane, prompted efforts to neutralize the watchdog body.

EWN reporter Barry Bateman has more on the story.

There were attempts last year by Ipid to interdict this team of North West investigators, because there is a conflict of interest here. This team of North West investigators are themselves the subject of investigations by Ipid.

Bary Bateman, EWN reporter

The matter is still pending in court so the interdict was not obtained but McBride saying he did raise this concern with police management.

Bary Bateman, EWN reporter

He is saying that the team was appointed by Khomotso Phahlane when he became the subject of an investigation.
