The Police Service Commission (PSC) has condemned the assault on a Police Orderly, Woman Inspector Teju Moses, attached to Professor Duke Zainab Abiola, said to be a Lawyer and Human Rights, Activist.
In a press statement, Ikechukwu Ani, Head, Press and Public Relations of PSC, said that Inspector Moses of the Special Protection Unit of the Nigeria Police Force was battered by her principal and aides for refusing to carry out unlawful orders.
Ani said: “The Commission condemns this act which it considers barbaric and inhuman. It seems the assault is a direct threat to national security and a calculated attempt at the Nigeria Police Force and what it stands for. While the Commission calls for immediate investigation and prosecution of all characters involved in the show of shame, the Special Protection Unit should be reviewed to ensure that only a few Nigerians who genuinely deserve such protection are availed of this service. The Commission frowns at the abuse of Police Orderlies by Nigerians who now use them as status symbols or convert them to house helps who clean, cook or do menial jobs. In view of the security problems ravaging the nation, there is an urgent need to free many Police Officers from loitering in private houses and following ‘big men’ around. The Commission calls on the Police hierarchy to quickly stop this practice and concentrate its efforts on policing and protecting a greater number of vulnerable Nigerians.”BEWARE All Rights Reserved.
