In a bid to check human rights abuses by the police, rhe Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Lagos State branch, says it is set to attach its members to police stations in the state.
The lawyers are to offer free legal services to detainees at the various cells.
The Chairman of the Lagos NBA Human Rights Committee, Mr Okey Ilofulunwa, said to actualize the free legal service project, a former Publicity Secretary of the branch, Mr Emeka Nwadioke, has been appointed as the Chairman of the Police Duty Solicitors Scheme.
He said the Nwadioke-led committee would drive implementation of Sections 33 and 34 of the Administration of Criminal Justice Act 2015.
“The committee will domicile its members in police detention centres among others to offer free legal services to detainees and help in stemming the filing of frivolous charges which congest our courts.
