According to a statement by Police spokesman, Emmanuel Ojukwu, Abba made the call at the Force Headquarters in Abuja after a courtesy call by Executive Secretary and Chief Executive Officer of NHRC, Prof Bem Angwe.

"He (Abba) assured the commission of Nigeria Police Force full support and its commitment to credible, peaceful, free and fair 2015 general elections," stated Ojukwu.

Angwe said the main purpose of the visit was to further strengthen the existing relationship with the Police and enable a platform for cooperation.
Angwe also disclosed that the commission had trained 30 000 police officers in the last two years.

He added that the commission will concentrate on monitoring the conduct of security personnel that will be deployed for the 2015 general elections.

The IGP announced some appointments with a view to strengthen the longtime relationship with the commission and to further guarantee timely responses which will be replicated by Commissioners of Police at the State Commands.

Angwe meanwhile thanked Abba for his prompt responses to issues brought to the notice of the Nigeria Police Force by the Commission.
