Imo panel flays police for ignoring invitation, receives 80 petitions
Justice Florence Duroha-Igwe (rtd.), Chairman of Imo State Panel on Police Brutality and Extra-judicial Killings, has decried the poor response of police officers to the its invitations, describing it as worrisome.
Duroha-Igwe, who stated this yesterday in Owerri, the state capital, disclosed that the commission had received 80 petitions from the initial two it received during the inaugural sitting on November 3, 2020.
She expressed optimism that despite police shunning of its invitations, the commission would continue to carry out its duties and administer justice, as long as it would not work as a court.
