Lawyer and human rights activist, Femi Falana has hit the Nigeria Police for always rushing to parade poor men without finding them guilty of any offence.

He said the same police would give rich men cover once they went against the law.

Falana, who was reacting to the recent arrest of 20 persons in connection with the Ile-Ife clash and the clampdown on members of the Peace Corps of Nigeria, said, they should sue the federal government for damages.

The lawyer in a statement Sunday evening said the media parade of the suspects by the police infringed their fundamental rights, and that it also violated the principle of presumption of innocence until proved guilty.

He also warned the attorney-general of the federation to caution law enforcement agencies
against parading criminal suspects.

He said, “Although the courts have repeatedly cautioned the law enforcement agencies to desist from parading criminal suspects before the media the inspector-general of police, Mr Ibrahim Idris has justified the illegal practice. It was a defence which smacks of official impunity and insensitivity.
