Nigerian Police Officers Indicted By Panel Should Face Prosecution – NHRC

Unic Press UK: The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) of Nigeria says the personnel of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) indicted by the Presidential Investigation Panel on Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigerian Police should face prosecution.

The Executive Secretary of NHRC, Tony Ojukwu, who submitted the Panel’s report to the Police service commission (PSC) chairman, Musliu Smith, said the police officers indicted by the panel have a case to answer.

The NHRC expressed confidence in the PSC’s ability to ensure a thorough implementation of the far-reaching recommendations of the Panel.

In June 2019, the NHRC submitted a report on the allegations of human rights violations against the dreaded Special Anti-Robbery Squad to President Mohammadu Buhari.


In the last two weeks, there have been peaceful demonstrations in all the six geopolitical regions, with the “Nigerian Youth” demanding Government’s immediate actions that would bring to an end perennial Police brutality/extra-judicial killings. The demonstrations still ongoing as we write.
