Usman Baba Alkali, the acting Inspector General of Police, has disbanded the IGP Monitoring Satellite Office in Lagos and Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
The disbandment was taken after complaints of harassment and operating beyond their briefs by Nigerians.
However, 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.
The development is coming 24 hours after the Police Service Commission asked the IGP to check the proliferation of police investigating units.
Musiliu Smith, the commission Chairman, said there must be proper and close monitoring of police investigative units to stem the atrocities its officials committed in the line of duty. He also stressed the need to quickly treat cases of misconduct by the officers “so that those found wanting are brought to book”.
