The inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has ordered the immediate withdrawal of the suit challenging the legality of State’s Judicial Panel of Enquiry that have been constituted to look into alleged cases of brutality by the officers of the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
This was contained in a statement released on Friday by the Force Public Relations Officer, DCP Frank Mba.
The IGP’s directive for the withdrawal of the suit is sequel to the outcome of the investigation he ordered on Thursday.
Recall that the legal unit of the Force had on Thursday, instituted a suit challenging the legality of the State’s Judicial Commission of Enquiry and this generated wide condemnations from Nigerians.
But in a swift reaction, the IGP on Thursday, ordered a probe into the alleged involvement of the Force Legal Section in the attempt to halt the ongoing Panel inquiries.
While assuring Nigerians of the Force’s commitment to reforms, the IGP said the Police Force will not “allow anybody to constitute a brick-wall to the ongoing reform processes of the Force.”
