The National Human Rights Commission panel investigating alleged human rights violations by the disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad has ordered the Nigeria police to provide reports on the whereabouts of two brothers, whose matter is before the panel.

The panel gave the order at its hearing in Abuja on Thursday.

The two brothers held by the police since December last year are Mr Matthew Ella and Mr Patrick Ella.

The Inspector-General of Police and the intelligence response team were listed as respondents.

Counsel to the complainants, Timothy Ahua, told the panel that Matthew was arrested by some police officers at his home in Ollo Edumega District in the Okpokwu Local Government Area of Benue on Dec. 20, 2019.

Ahua alleged that the two brothers had been held since then without trial.

The counsel said that he applied for the enforcement of Matthew’s fundamental human rights, which was pending in court but that the police refused to produce the victim in court.

When asked where the complainants were, Ahua said that they were still being detained by the police.

Ahua named Waziri Mustapha, Alhassan Emmanuel and one Glory as knowing the whereabouts of the two brothers.

However, Counsel to the police, Godwin Ijeomah, told the panel that the police needed time to determine the whereabouts of the two brothers.

The panel Chairman, Justice Suleiman Galadima, told the police to ensure that the two brothers were produced at the next sitting of the panel.

He adjourned until Dec. 2 for the police to report on the whereabouts of the two brothers.
