The Inspector General of Police (IGP), Mr. Ibrahim Idris, has said that henceforth, the X-Squad unit of the Force, will investigate corruption-related cases at federal, state and local governments’ agencies.
Idris said the X-Squad will no longer limit itself to the investigation of corruption cases within the Force.
The IGP made the disclosure, when he delivered a keynote address at the flag off ceremony and nationwide distribution of Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit (PCRRU) flyers at the Wuse Market, Abuja.
He said: “The X-Squad is empowered, reinvigorated and properly equipped to carry out their duties and other responsibilities effectively in accordance with the law.
“The X-Squad will not limit itself to corruption cases within the Force alone but to other agencies in the federal, state and local levels throughout the country.”
According to the Police boss: “The Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit (PCRRU) is a unit in the Force saddled with the responsibility of receiving and resolving all complaints of Police professional misconduct emanating from policing activities and operations nationwide.
“The Unit is available 24 hours a day to listen to members of the public from across Nigeria.”
