Meanwhile, the former Police Public Relations Officer, Lagos State Command, Dolapo Badmus, has described as ‘fake news, reports of her demotion as a result of violation of human rights.
“Ignore Fake News. Whoever slotted my name in that list is a joker. I will forever respect people’s human rights, my name will never be put up as one who has violated another’s right,” She tweeted.
Police Service Commission denies demotion list
In a related development, the Police Service Commission, PSC, through its spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani, has denied the list of demotion and dismissal of some former officers of the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS.
A list reportedly submitted by the Presidential Panel on Police Reforms surfaced on Saturday including names and service numbers of 37 officers alleged to have been recommended for dismissal and demotion.
Ani was quoted as saying, “The Commission did not sit yesterday and I am not aware of any dismissal. The Commission meets officially before any decision is taken and it has not met.”
One of the demands of EndSars protesters is the sacking and trial of ex SARS officers who violated human rights of Nigerians.
The disbanded terror police unit was notorious for extra-judicial killing, maiming and total violation of human rights.
