The House of Representatives has cautioned the Nigeria Police to ensure that Ms. Chidinma Ojukwu, who is being held in connection with the death of late Usifo Ataga, does not die in their custody.
The House also urged the Police to conduct a thorough investigation into the murder incident and refrain from parading Ms. Chidinma around to grant interviews on a matter under investigation.
The Green Chamber also urged the Inspector General of Police, IGP, Usman Baba, to caution all police personnel against violation of the rights of suspects through media trials, so as not to compromise cases in law.
This followed the adoption of a motion by Tolu Akande-Sadipe, calling for compliance of the police force with extant laws in the investigation into the death of late Ataga.
