The Network on Police Reform In Nigeria, NOPRIN, on Wednesday demanded the sack of the Inspector-General of Police, Suleiman Abba, the leadership of the Department of State Security Service, DSS, and all the service chiefs in the country in order to overhaul the entire security system of the nation.
The group listed several sins against Abba including human rights abuse and corruption while saying the entire security system has been politicised.
A group known as the Network on Police Reform In Nigeria, NOPRIN, has pleaded with the president-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari not to retain the services of current Inspector General of Police Suleiman Abba, all service chiefs, the Director of SSS and all heads of similarly compromised security services as well as senior officers who have been politically exposed.
At a press conference held in Lagos, and led by its National Co-ordinator, Nwanguma Okechukwu, the civil society group championing reforms for the police, also asked Nigeria’s President-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, to ensure that he reconciled all committee reports for the reform of the police and other security agencies in the country.
“All service chiefs, the Director of SSS, the Inspector-General of Police and all heads of similarly compromised security services as well as senior officers who have been politically exposed should be retired compulsorily to restore integrity and professionalism in our security services.
“They clearly showed their loyalty is, not to the law, not to the Nigerian people, through their elected representatives but solely to the executive and the ruling party,” the organisation said.
