Acting Inspector-General of Police, Alkali Baba, has ordered the immediate disbandment of the IGP Monitoring Satellite Offices in Lagos and Port Harcourt over complaints of harassment and operating beyond their briefs by Nigerians.
At the maiden meeting with Command Police Commissioners and zonal AIGs, in Abuja, Usman Baba said the IGP Monitoring Units would 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.
The commission stated that the units were bringing huge embarrassments to the force.
The commission Chairman, Musiliu Smith, said there must be proper and close monitoring of police investigative units to stem atrocities officials committed in the line of duty.
