The Inspector-General of Police, IGP M.A Adamu, has called for immediate investigations into a suit purportedly instituted by the Force legal team challenging the legality of Judicial Panels of Inquiry set up by states to investigate allegations of Police brutality by officers of the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
A statement released by the spokesperson of the Force, Frank Mba, says the Force Legal team has been queried and may face further sanctions if found guilty of dereliction of duty.
In the statement, the spokesperson said “the IGP is committed to fulfilling all his obligations with regards to the disbandment of the defunct SARS, the ongoing Judicial Panels and all other police reforms”.
The IGP, was reported to have given the order on the backdrop of disturbing reports in the media.
He expressed his resentments on the matter and immediately ordered investigations into the alleged role of the Force Legal team in the whole issue.
