The chairman of the Police Service Commission and former Inspector General of Police, Solomon Arase, has announced plans by the commission to set up a Complaint Response Unit parallel to the existing Police Complaint Response Unit under the command of the Nigeria Police Force Headquarters.
Punch newspaper reports that Arase made this known on Thursday during separate meetings with officials of a Civil Society Organisation, CLEEN Foundation, and the national leadership of the Nigerian Union of Journalists, in Abuja.
A statement by the spokesperson for the PSC, Ikechukwu Ani, quoted Arase as saying, “A police force that does not connect with the public or respect human rights will find it difficult to succeed. We would do everything possible to improve on the services of the police.
“Indiscipline will no longer be tolerated in the police force; we are setting up a parallel Complaint Response Unit at the commission to police the police.”
