3 months ago 28

The acting Inspector-General of Police, Alkali Baba has disbanded the IGP Monitoring Satellite offices in Lagos and Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

According to Vanguard, Baba gave the order, following the incessant complaints of harassment and operating beyond their briefs over cases of investigations.

The acting IGP while speaking at his first meeting with Commissioner of Police across the country and Zonal-AIGs, said the IGP Monitoring Unit as a whole will be re-organised.

The IGP Monitoring Teams have been accused of various human rights abuses and gross corruption, just like it was with the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad.

Meanwhile, unknown gunmen have killed three police officers and injured others along Nwezenyi road in Abakaliki, the Ebonyi state capital.

It was gathered that the gunmen ambushed the officers and shot them on close range while on duty at about 7:30 pm on Wednesday.
