Endsars : We’ve inaugurated Committee to Handle Police Complaint – Dingyadi

Damilola Adeyemo

ABUJA –Report says The Minister of Police Affairs, Mohammed Dingyadi, Thursday, inaugurated the Police Public Complaints Committee (PPCC) to handle complaints against police officers and men.

Inaugurating the committee at the ministry’s headquarters in Abuja, Dingyadi said the committee was part of efforts to avert any further civil unrest stemming from the misconduct of police personnel as experienced during the #EndSARS protest that rocked the country in 2020.

He said the committee was designed as a permanent structure that would prevent civil unrest with its concomitant effects and disruptive tendencies by providing the populace with the opportunity to channel their grievances on the misconduct of police personnel to the appropriate quarters for necessary action.
“The PPCC is created as a specialised institution to deal strictly with public complaints against police personnel.

“The overriding objective of the PPCC is to serve as an institution that has oversight on the activities of police personnel viz-a-viz their interaction with the public,” he said.
According to the minister, “It is obvious that the current habit of the public lodging complaints against police personnel at police stations or at various police commands has not given the desired solutions to aggrieved Nigerians.”
