The panel set up to investigate allegations of killings, extortion and organ harvesting levelled against some senior officers of two police formations in Anambra has submitted its report after two months.
This is according to a text message by the Force Public Relations Officer, CSP Muyiwa Adejobi, on Sunday.
The response was based on enquiries by journalists in Awka.
Recall that a whistleblower through a blog, Gistlover, had in early February shared evidence accusing three members of the state police force of the atrocious activities.
The allegations also included torturing and forceful acquisition of properties owned by arrested victims.
The police officers involved in the allegations are the Commander Rapid Response Squad in Anambra, CSP Patrick Agbazue; the Zonal Public Relations Officer, Zone 13, Ukpo, SP Nkeiru Nwode; and Inspector Harrison Akama.
Following the allegations, the force Headquarters set up a panel to investigate the matter after inviting the officers involved to Abuja, and subsequently freeing them.
It was gathered that the panel has submitted its report to the Inspector General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba.
The force PRO, who disclosed this in a text message upon enquiry on Sunday said, “I am aware that the team has carried an investigation into the allegations, and a report has been sent to the IGP recently. I will get a copy of the report and act.”
