Police Brutality: Nigerian army cries out over killing of its personnel by police
The Nigerian Army has bemoaned the k*lling of its personnel in joint operations with the Nigerian Police, directing all its formations and units to commence the collation of data victims of police br*tality within its ranks in the last two years.

This was contained in a letter signed by Major General James Ataguba, the Chief of Standards and Evaluation and sent to all units on November 23, People Gazette reports.

“Consequently, all NA corps, formations, and establishments are requested to forward all recorded incidence of police br*tality against personnel of the NA. The report should cover the last two years,” the army said in the document titled “Evaluating Incidences of Police Brutality Against Personnel of Nigerian Army”.

The institution, which said the br*tality has led to bodily h*rm and the de*th of personnel, urged all units to submit the necessary data on or before December 8, 2021. According to the army, violence often breaks during joint operations as police tend to equate its hierarchy with the Nigerian Army.

The army, however, said it was conducting an evaluation of incidents with a view to finding measures to prevent future occurrences.
