With the recurring rise in police cruelty meted out on Nigerian citizens and the flagrant abuse of office by these security opperatives, the Inspector General of police, Ibrahim Idris Kpotum has taken steps to eradicate lawlessness in the police force.
In a message posted on the official page of the Nigerian Police force on social media, several offices and contact details were posted, so citizens can easily report cases of police cruelty.
Recall that this is coming months after the End SARS campaign that trended on social media.
According to them, “Aggrieved members of the public who have any complaint in the past or present of violation of their rights by any Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) personnel anywhere in the country should report through any of the following channels for investigation and further actions.”
