Acting Inspector-General of Police, Alkali Baba, has ordered the IGP Monitoring Satellite Offices in Lagos and Port Harcourt be disbanded over complaints of harassment and operating beyond their briefs by Nigerians.
While speaking at his maiden meeting with Command Police Commissioners and zonal AIGs, in Abuja on Thursday, Baba said the IGP Monitoring Units will be re-organised as the operation of the unit is not pleasant to Nigerians.
Barely 24 hours after the Police Service Commission asked the IGP to check the proliferation of police investigating units, on the ground that the units were bringing huge embarrassments to the force.
The commission Chairman, Musiliu Smith, said there must be proper and close monitoring of police investigative units to stem the atrocities its officials commit in line of duty.
Musiliu stated the need to quickly treat cases of misconduct by the officers “so that those found wanting are subjected to discipline”.
