As Judicial Panel of Inquiry set up by some States across the country to investigate allegation of police brutality, human rights abuses and extral-judicial killings by Police officers, particularly, its unit of Special
Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) begin sittings, a human and civil rights activist, Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman has urged the Judicial Panels not to spare any Police
officer found wanting of wrong doings.
Sulaiman advised members of the panels to conduct a thorough,unbiased and credible Investigation into all the allegations of brutality and extra-judicial killings leveled against the men and officers of Nigeria Police,
especially SARS.Comrade Sulaiman who is Executive Chairman, Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice (CHRSJ) described the Police formations in the land as “Ministry of Injustices”, insisting that men and officers of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) have turned themselves to demons and Court of Law that kill at will turning themselves above the law of the country.
Sulaiman who doubles as Convener, Save Lagos Group(SLG) listed Police formations which have been known for notorious actions
against the Innocent citizens of the country as; Ogun State FSARS, Maagbon, Lagos F-SARS Adeniji Adele,Alagbon F-CID,Gbagada Charley Boy Bus-Stop, Anti-cultism Squad, Ikorodu SARS office, Cement area Iyana-Ipaja SARS office, Olusegun Obasanjo library IGP F-SARS
office,Obada-Oko Zone 2 SARS Annex,Ogijo Police Station and many other Police killer Squad offices across the land.The rights activist who strongly condemned the jungle justice against the twenty-two(22) officers of Nigeria Police during the recent #EndSARS protests across the country, advised the Inspector General of Police(IGP) Muhammed Adamu to stop giving provocative order to Police officers because such an order could trigger another crisis between the Nigerians and the Police.He advised the IGP to begin the re-orientation of the rank and file and officers of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) in order to work
within the ambit of the Law instead of encouraging them to adopt the
violent attack against the perceived enemies.According to him; “IGP order to officers of Nigeria Police Force (NPF) is primitive and barbaric because our present social atmosphere cannot accommodate such directive. Officers of the Force should be taught to imbibe the culture of self discipline by stopping the violation of human rights of the Nigerians in line of their constitutional duties.”IGP should know that it would not augur well for the Police to use brute force to suppress public anger and frustration of the system. Such action would continue to threaten our fragile unity more than ever. The judicial panels on their part, should ensure that justice is served where it is supposed to be served at the end of their sittings”

Sulaiman added that the Police boss should strive hard to restore the lost glory and confidence of Nigeria Police to the mind of
the people by ensuring that the good officers outnumbered the bad ones in the Force because Police is indispensable to our society.

Recalling that the Commander of the F-SARS, Abba Kyari, a Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCP), was fingered in the disappearance of one Seyi Adebusuyi since 2013, under his watch as Lagos State F-SARS Commander and also alleged of extorting sum of Forty-One million naira (N41, 000,000) from a business man, adding that all these allegations
must be thoroughly investigated by the Panel in order to unravel the
truth of the whole matter.

He therefore called on the affected State panels to thoroughly investigate these aforestated officers of SARS ; DCP Abba Kyari, ACP Akin Fakorede, CSP Anieto Eyo, CSP Carol Afegbai, CSP James Nwafor,
Inspector Ogunyemi Olalekan and Inspector Wasiu Ayinla Lawal. Others
are; Sergeant Goodwin Orji,Aliyu Mukaila,Solimon Sunday,Olaniyi
Solomon,Fabiyi Solomon, Femi Abogun and Oshinowo.
