Mr Sam Okaula, the Anambra state's new Police Commissioner has vowed to nip every abuse of human rights in the bud in the discharge of police duty in the state through constant sensitization of his officers and the citizenry.

According to Okaula, the police would also maintain good working condition with members of the Civil Society Network, and others operating in Anambra state.

He made this known while receiving the executive members of Civil Society Network, Anambra state in his office during their courtesy cum familiarization visit.

The Police Commissioner further affirmed that his officers will strongly observe the rule of law and respect for human rights as any abuse of human rights is not tolerated anywhere he serves, even as he added that he will run an open door policy.

Earlier speaking, Chairman of Civil Society Network, Anambra state, Elvis Oliver Okolie, explained that his group is the apex and umbrella body of all the CSOs, NGOs, FBOs, CBOs, e.t.c, a CAC registered independent and well trained watchdog that partners with the government and security agencies in ensuring that the vision of a vibrant, democratic, politically stable, peaceful and organised Anambra state, where justice, equity and rule of law reigns supreme, is actualized.

His words, "We as a group, having had a tip of your antecedents, are at ease knowing that your leadership will not tolerate any abuse of human rights just as we keep educating our people in different ways to shun violence, thuggery, robbery, kidnapping and every other social vice."

Other Civil Society Network executive members present during the courtesy call were Emily Uzoh, Financial Secretary;  Njideka Okeke, Assistant Secretary;  Nickson Nkpolara, Coordinator, Anambra South and O'star Eze, Media Director.
