BEARS: Police Excesses
Several women’s rights groups and civil society organizations protested in Abuja on Friday, demanding an end to police impunity, after officers were accused of carrying out a string of sexual assaults.

Dozens of women were dragged out of nightclubs, hotels and bars in Abuja last month in police raids, and then arrested for prostitution- a charge many furiously denied. Testimonies from women who were involved in the sad occurrence provided shocking stories of multiple and brutal sexual assaults carried out by police officers after their arrest.

When will these police officers stop these degrading acts? Have they moved from brutal killings of innocent citizens to raping women who they should be protecting.
