Post created on 3:24 pm
The Nigeria Police Force has applied to withdraw its suit seeking to stop the various states’ judicial panels of enquiry probing allegations of rights abuses and other acts of brutality of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad and other police tactical units.
The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, on Thursday, had denied authorising the filing of the suit and queried the legal officer of the police.
Recall that the decision to set up the various panels of enquiry was taken by the National Economic Council in the aftermath of the recent nationwide #EndSARS protests demanding an end to police brutality
