EndSARS: Minister inaugurates committee to handle complaints against police

INTEL Editorial


The Minister of Police Affairs, Mohammad Dingyadi, has inaugurated the Police Public Complaints Committee (PPCC) to handle complaints against police personnel in the country.

Inaugurating the committee on Wednesday in Abuja, Mr Dingyadi said the committee was a specialised institution created to deal strictly with complaints against police personnel.

He said the focus was to put in place a permanent structure that would help to effectively check civil unrest.

The minister said the idea was to provide the populace with opportunity to channel their grievances on the misconduct of police personnel to the appropriate quarters for necessary actions.

He said that PPCC had been in existence over the years but had been moribund due to lack of funds.

According to him, ”if the PPC has been active, it would have provided adequate channel through which affected Nigerians would have been ventilating their grievances on police brutality”.

He said the tragedy that befell the country during the #ENDSARS protest would have been averted if the PPCC was active.

Mr Dingyadi said the Federal Government “is determined to ensure that such ugly incidents would never occur again”.

“The Public Complaints Commission deals generally with all kinds of complaints against administrative injustices by public institutions.
