By Hassan Umar Shallpella (Regional Correspondent)


The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), has urged the Nigeria Police Force, the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), and other security agencies to stop the unconstitutional act to stop parading suspects.

Tony Ojukwu, the NHRC Executive Secretary, while addressing newsmen on Thursday in Abuja, said it is illegal as they have not been convicted, adding that even the Court had also condemned such act of parading pre-trial suspects.

He assured that the commission would take legal action against such acts by the police and other agencies.

“The commission has discovered that people whose rights have been violated in such a manner, walked away and forgot everything once they were released on bail.

“Let me put it on record that anybody who has suffered that kind of treatment can approach the commission and together, we will follow up the case till we get justice,” Ojukwu said.
