Speaking at his maiden meeting with Command Police Commissioners and zonal AIGs, in Abuja on Thursday, Baba said the IGP Monitoring Units will be re-organised.

The development is coming 24 hours after the Police Service Commission asked the IGP to check the proliferation of police investigating units.

The commission opined that the units were causing harm to the force by the behaviour they portray .The commission Chairman, Musiliu Smith, said there must be a proper check on police investigative units to duly address the atrocities its officials committed in the line of duty.

The retired IGP had also stressed the need to quickly treat cases of misconduct by the officers so that those found wanting are brought to book.
