The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris has portrayed a late Amnesty International report affirming torment in Police Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) detainment cells as predisposition and tragic.
Another report by the International organization asserted that the first class Nigerian police squad (SARS) set up to battle crime tortures detainees to extract lucrative bribes and confessions.
As per the report, the Special Anti-Robbery Squad requests rewards, takes and coerces cash from criminal suspects and their families and is “instigating a harmful atmosphere of apprehension and defilement.
Responding to the report in Abuja on Wednesday, IGP Idris said the Amnesty International has taken a predisposition position against the Nigerian Police Force, including that the report did not mirror the position of the Police.
While asserting that the Force was not allowed to react to the affirmations in the report before it was made open, the IGP clarified that as of late, Amnesty International and other Civil Society Groups asked for to review SARS confinement offices and other police detainment focuses the nation over and were permitted to do as such just for them to say the cells were prearranged and kept clean since they were coming.
In any case, IGP Idris cautioned police authorities and other senior officers to guarantee their officers and men work inside universal best practices as the Police won’t endure any activity that would convey humiliation to the Force.
