Nigeria Police condemn in all its entity every element of torture in the conduct of police operations in this country - IGP

Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris has reacted to the report by Amnesty International, which accused a special Nigerian police unit set up to combat crimes, of torturing detainees in its custody as a means of extracting confessions and lucrative bribes. (Read here)

In an interview with Al Jazeera, IGP Ibrahim Idris denied all the allegations. "Nigeria Police Force condemn in all its entity every element of torture in the conduct of police operations in this country." he said. "And we have units on the ground to check some of these excesses."

“I can ensure you is that in the Nigeria Police Force, we have all units. Every unit have codes of conduct, which is distributed among the officers. And we have the units that check the excesses of our officers. I can assure you that the Nigeria Police Force has never ever been involved in any element of torture in all its activities in the cause of their investigation all over the country.”

On what is being done to investigate the allegations and bring the people involved to account, he said: "In reality, some of the allegations by the Amnesty International highlighted in their report, we investigated them thoroughly and came to a very definite conclusion that some of these allegations are false."

Mr man speak for yourself
Don't speak for others...rather acknowledge the report and say you'd conduct an intensive investigations...this will do than defending people that are damn as guilty as charged

Before AI made this public...they conducted investigations and interviewed many victims.

NPF is guilty biko

I hate this country

If it's developed countries they'll acknowledge and pledge to investigate

Wtf! My family had a personal experience with enugu state anti kidnapping squad framing my dad for murder and kidnap, coming all the way from enugu to arrest my dad in abia on November, 2014 with zero intentions of charging him to court but rather demanded 7 million naira from us to release him. And when that didn't happen they tried to poison my dad with a bottle of coke drink in prison. It took the special grace of God for the case to be transfer to imo state where the alleged crime supposedly happen after 1 month plus of illegal detention in Enugu till today my dad is still battling to be freed from this useless country's judicial system,with zero evidence o. I mean 2 years later you accuse me of killing someone and there is still no sign of the person's dead body anywhere. I swear to God, left for me i will torture and kill any police man i see, the protectors have all become the persecutors. No one is safe anymore, jungle justice will soon start taking place, we have to defend ourselves against the police. I detest anybody in uniform, the fact that the top public police servants come out to deny this publicly gives the junior police staff a go ahead to continue this same act. I have so much anger in me regarding the police and i will pay them back in their own coin. When you keep pushing the people to the wall, i pray they unite against you one day and this unless Nigerian police force will fall to the ground.
Am done praying to God! Local action will start soon. Fuck the police!

My experience with a senior police officer from Benin in Edo state leading his boys in Kwara state a while back.
At 2 a.m. daily, he and his boys would change into mufti and set up road blocks on major highways for armed robbery purposes. One of his boys related this to me and state they are all hesitant but have no choice where the superior officer is concerned.
I am sure this is not isolated to just him.

I'm a police officer and it's true we torture our victim so as to make more money from them. IG investigate well cos it's true.
