ABSTRACT

The aim of this research work is to examine the Nigeria Police and excessive use of power, a case study of Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Ikeja Police Command, Lagos State. 

To effectively carry out this research, data was collected in form of questionnaire from respondents who are staff of Special Anti-Robbery Squad. (120) one hundred and twenty questionnaire were administered, (107) one hundred and seven copies were returned and (100) one hundred copies are used. After critical analysis of the data collected, findings revealed that the Nigeria Police and excessive use of power cannot be over emphasized in reducing the rate of excessive use of power and violations of fundamental Human Rights of the citizens.

“I must admit, it is the duty of the Nigeria Police Force to protect every citizen as well as foreigners in our land” (Balogun 2002:23). This obvious statement by the formal Inspector - General of Police, Mr. Tafa Balogun, seems to be a clear indication that all is not well with the administrative of law and order in Nigeria. Emile Durkheim (1950:65) posited that, “crime is present…. in all societies of all types”. Invariably the police, as earlier stated, represent the organ of the government charged with the responsibility of law and order maintenance. In the course of the performance of its statutory role to the society, the Nigeria police force have been found wanting in one-way or the other.
