Just-In: Police withdraw suit against #ENDSARS judicial panels


#EndSARS protesters wanted to remove me from office - Buhari

The Nigeria Police Force has moved to withdraw the suit which seeks to stop the various judicial panels from probing allegations of rights abuses by its operatives.

It would be recalled that the judicial panels were set up across states following a protest demanding justice for victims who suffered brutality at the hands of the now-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

The suit titled FHC/ABJ/CS/1492/2020 was filed through the lawyer of the police force, O. M. Atoyebi (SAN).

This was yesterday disowned by the Inspector-General of Police, IGP Adamu Mohammed, who ordered an investigation to unravel those behind it.

A notice of discontinuance has now been filed on Friday by a lawyer to the NPF, Festus Ibude.
