#EndSARS: Police academy proposes courses to check human rights abuse
NEWSMAN, Abuja – Nigeria Police Academy, Wudil, Kano, has proposed the introduction of more core policing courses into its curriculum to address the human rights abuse by policemen.
Commandant of the academy, AIG Ibrahim Zanna, who made the disclosure on Tuesday during the matriculation of the seventh regular course cadets, said the recent #EndSARS protests had posed serious challenges that required scientific research that would advance policing through recruitment, training and capacity development of officers that would provide and promote partnership with communities for optimal service delivery, PUNCH reported.
“I advocate for core policing courses that have to do with human rights and professionalism, so that by the time these cadets go to the field, they certainly will have respect for human rights, they will not go about doing unwholesome acts, just like the allegations being made by members of the public against the SARS”, Zanna Said.
He assured that the graduates that will be churned out of the Nigeria Police Academy will be highly professional “because from time to time we are reviewing our curriculum to go along with changing realities to go along with changing time.”
