The Acting Inspector General (IG) of Police, Mohammed Adamu, said in Benin City on Monday that the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) has contributed up to 80 per cent of the successes recorded by the Nigeria Police Force.
Adamu made the remark at the commencement of a three-day Human Rights Training Programme for officers of SARS in Edo.
The IG, represented by CP Abiodun Odube, Commissioner of Police in charge of Training and Development, said this was in spite of the protests by Nigerians against the activities of SARS.
He noted that one area of conflict between the public and SARS was in the area of human rights.
The IG said the training was, therefore, a holistic approach to enhance the performance of the squad.
He also said that the force was committed to the training and re-training of its officers and men across the country to respect the human rights of the citizens.
According to him, the training seeks to improve professionalism of officers, who are expected to take the training down to their subordinates and the rank-and-file.
He stressed that the training was part of a holistic reform to get police personnel adequately equipped to discharge their duties and win the trust of Nigerians.
Kano CP Apologises To NBA Over illegal Arrest
The Kano state Commissioner of Police, Mohammed Wakili has on Thursday apologised to the Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) over molestation and unlawful arrest of its members by policemen.
The apology came barely 24 hours to expiration of a 48-hour ultimatum by the Kano NBA to Wakili.
The Nation reports the NBA in a statement on Wednesday said armed policemen had molested and arrested its members working at an election petition secretariat.
The association also accused Wakili of being partisan in the discharge of his duty.
However, on receiving the information about the ultimatum, the commissioner appeared at the NBA secretariat on today to tender an unreserved apology.
Speaking to newsmen after the visit, Wakili said he decided to come by himself to say sorry after he investigated the incident that led to the arrest and detention of two lawyers.
“After receiving the complaint and even heard it through the media, I launched an investigation and found that they were unlawfully arrested.
“Therefore, I deemed it fit to go there myself and tender my apology. I am a Police man who discharges his duty within the concept of law,” he said.
The CP also urged the association and other people to challenge him whenever he goes contrary to law.
The state secretary of the association, Mujtaba Adamu-Ameen, commended the CP for the gesture, describing him as a professional and ethical cop.
“As you can see, the CP abided by our ultimatum. He came here and apologised. This show that he is a professional and disciplined Corp,” he said
