IG Orders For Complaint Response Units Establishment Nationwide

Acting Inspector-General of Police (Ag. IGP), Olukayode Egbetokun, has ordered State Commissioners of Police to establish Complaint Response Units in their respective command.

He said the development was due to his zeal to sanitize and standardise the police system for accountability and transparency in line with his commitment to fortify the complaints response mechanisms of the Force.

Egbetokun also approved the appointment of CSP El-Mustapha Sani as the Head, CRU, following the posting of DCP Markus Basiran, as DC Homicide, Force Criminal Investigations Department Annex, Alagbon, Lagos.

This follows the recent visit of the Chief Commissioner, Public Complaints Commission, Abimbola Ayo-Yusuf, and his team to the Force Headquarters, where the Ag. IG and the delegation extensively discussed issues of mutual interest and areas of collaboration.

The Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, made the development known in a correspondence obtained by The Tide’s source.

Adejobi said, “El-Mustapha Sani, a seasoned officer with an exemplary record of service, brings a wealth of experience to this crucial role.

“His extensive background in complaint resolution in the Public Complaint Bureau of the Force Public Relations Department, coupled with his dedication to justice and fairness, makes him a fitting choice to lead the Complaint Response Unit.

“In the same vein, the IG reiterates his order that all Commissioners of Police in charge of State Commands should establish Complaint Response Unit Offices in their respective State Commands Headquarters to boost the IG’s unwavering zeal to fight corruption and unprofessionalism.

“The IG encourages all stakeholders, the public, civil society organisations, and other law enforcement agencies, to collaborate closely with Police Complaint Response Units and aid the smooth execution of their responsibilities of curbing misconducts, excesses, and unprofessionalism among police officers nationwide.

“He similarly stressed that the Force remains resolute in its pursuit of transparency, accountability, and the protection of citizens’ rights toward building public trust and fostering a harmonious relationship between the police and the people”.
