Reacting to the news, CACOL Executive Chairman, Debo Adeniran noted that the action the CP speaks volume the barbaric and inhumane way the men the Nigerian Police treat an Nigerian daily basis.

“The police boss demonstrated what an Nigerian faces in the present crop of policemen. It is rather unfortunate that a whole commissioner of police attempt to cover the crimes committed by his men. the Nigerian Police ceased to a public institution that its activities should shielded from the public domain? That is violation of the rights of the said journalist and must handled the way of the law.
