The Nigeria Police Force on Friday presented a witness to testify against a petitioner who claimed his properties were sold by operatives of the defunct Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).

At the resumed sitting of the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS on Friday in Lekki, the police witness, Cletus Ogbu, was cross-examined while testifying on behalf of the Force.

This comes as a petitioner, Okoliagu Abunike, claimed that he was maltreated by the police and most of his properties were sold by the Force to recover his debt to Cletus during his detention.

He, however, described the petitioner as a thief, a claim the court asked to withdraw immediately.

He was thereafter discharged as a witness in the petition.
