The Inspector General of Police, Mr Ibrahim Idris, has warned men and officers of the Police against the use of fire arms and official powers to intimidate and violate the fundamental human rights of suspects and Nigerians, in the course of executing the mandate of the Police.

Mr Ibrahim issued the warning in Makurdi, at a three-day human rights sensitization workshop for Divisional Police Officers serving in Benue state.

The training was facilitated by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime UNODC and PRAWA.

The IGP advised participants to be civil in their official conduct and not portray the Police force and the Nigerian government as dictatorial.

He was represented at the three-day workshop by the Assistant Inspector General of Police Zone 4, Mr Oshodi Agboola. (Channels TV)
