SARS/Police Brutality, Extortion Have Reached Frightening Level – Chief Justice Of Nigeria



Justice Walter Onnoghen, the Chief Justice of Nigeria, has directed that Chief Magistrates should periodically inspect police stations and other detention centres in their domains, to curb growing level of citizen maltreatment by police and other security agencies.

This followed what he described as the “frightening proportions” of “horrific incidents of police brutality, inordinate arrest, detention and extortion of innocent Nigerians by officers across the country” in recent time.
The directive is said to be in a ‘Practice Direction on the Role of Magistrates in Curbing Police Brutality’ issued on Wednesday, June 20, 2018, in line with the provisions of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act.
