Lagos CP Set To Restructure SARS, Anti-Kidnapping Squad
The Commissioner of Police in Lagos state, Imohimi Edgal has reforms on his mind. He wants to do things differently.
He has set up a panel to review the operations of the Federal Special Anti-Robbery squad (FSARS) and Anti-Kidnapping Squad of the Lagos command.
This is in line with the directive of the Inspector General of Police that all police investigating units be restructured for better service delivery.
The panel, made up of serving and retired police officers as well as some civilians have been given two weeks to carry out their assignment.
They are to recommend ways to make the units more efficient and professional.
Allegations of human rights violation, suitability of officers currently on posting to affected units are issues being resolved.
The CP is also interested in recommendations aimed at ending civil disputes: torture, illegal, prolonged and unconstitutional detentions, safety/custody of exhibits and welfare of suspects and detainees.
Sexual abuses and molestation as well as the issue of bail being free is also an important matter before the panel.
