This book examines a number of issues affecting the performance of the Nigeria Police, commencing with the trajectories of the origin of police in Nigeria and the need for the establishment of the Nigeria Police Force. It deals with the establishment, structure and powers as well as the daunting human rights issues arising from police arrest, detention, torture and search.
The Police Law and your Rights
The book, as it were, analyses the poor public perception of the Nigeria police and investigates the cause of this ominous development, noting several cases of corruption and extra-legal killing by the police, and foraying into the municipal and international laws, conventions, and institutions on human and peoples’ rights. The author also presents in this book some arguments for and against establishment of state police and some efforts being made by the incumbent Inspector-General to reform the Nigeria.
This book is targeted at officers and men of the Nigeria Police, government functionaries, politicians, human rights organizations, corporate bodies, lawyers and the general public.
