The Nigerian Bar Association (NBA) Imo State Branch has set up a help desk at the Bar Centre to collate the names of innocent people unjustly arrested and detained by the Nigeria Police for the purpose of securing their release. This is a sequel to the meeting with the Commissioner of Police and the Security Adviser to the Governor.

The Bar, through its committee on Human Rights, will anchor and coordinate the help desk at the Bar center to entertain complaints on unlawful arrest and detention of Imolites.

Complaints received will be taken up with the appropriate quarters in order to secure the release of these detainees; considering that the Courts are not sitting owing to the JUSUN strike.

This approach according to the Publicity Secretary of the Association, Mr. Uzor Enwere is dictated by the precarious security situation in Imo State at the moment which has the semblance of war situation. “The outcome of our interactions reveal that there is more to the situation than meets the eye”, he said.

The Human Rights help desk of the Bar will open from 4th day of June,2021 at the Bar centre from 10am or so soon thereafter. The help desk phone lines to call are;08035251755, 08035512622 and O8079285239.
