Amnesty Int’l shares findings of police misconduct with Commission

 

The Amnesty International, on Wednesday, visited the Police Service Commission (PSC) to share findings of abuses and violations of human rights by the officers of the Nigeria Police Force.

The PSC Head, Press and Public Relations, Mr Ikechukwu Ani, who disclosed the visit in a statement, said the commission pledged to work with the Nigerian Office of the Amnesty International to drastically reduce Human rights abuses in the country.

Ani quoted the Chairman of the commission, Mr. Musiliu Smith, as saying that commission had started work on this and requested the agency to carry the commission along in its findings before such reports were released.

He said the commission had set a new agenda for the Nigeria Police Force to ensure that operations of the police showed increased respect for human rights.

The chairman noted that the commission had received a lot of complaints about police misconduct, but promised that it would ensure that such complaints were treated speedily and with fairness.

Ani said the leader of delegation and Director, Amnesty International, Nigerian Office, Osai Ojigho, said that the visit was to engage the commission on the reform in the Nigeria Police Force, especially the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) and other legislative reforms.

She said it was also to share the findings of the agency with the commission regarding certain abuses and violations of human rights by the officers of the Nigeria Police Force.

Ojigho said, “We are currently documenting cases involving SARS Operatives since 2016.”

She called for a comprehensive law against excessive use of force and the amendment of the Force Order to reflect international standard.
