Kaduna State Police Command has warned vigilante men in the state to strictly comply with the Vigilance Service Law of Kaduna State, 2016.
Particularly, he said Sections 9(6) and 10(1) which provide inter alia that suspects arrested for any reason should not be subjected to any form of torture and most be handed over to the Police for appropriate action.
The Police Public Relation Officer of the Command ASP Mohammed Jalige stated this in a statement made available to media in kaduna yesterday.
The statement stated that while the Command and other sister security agencies make efforts to sustain peace in the State and while appreciating the efforts of the Vigilante personnel in Kaduna State, all vigilante men must play by the rules.
The statement further stated that, the Command will no longer take it lightly with any Vigilance Service personnel that will engage in killing or torturing any suspect arrested without due procedure as provided by the Law.
