Mr Dingyadi said this at the launch of the North West Police Public Complaints Committee (PPCC) awareness campaign on Thursday in Sokoto.
He said the inauguration of the committee was part of the Federal Government's efforts to deepen and improve police capacity through responsive reforms aimed at promoting the rule of law and protecting the human rights of citizens.

“It is to provide an avenue through which the public can channel their complaints and grievances about police brutality and address them appropriately.
“It is in line with the president's quest for better national security and development,” Mr. Dingyadi said.
He assured that the Buhari-led administration was determined to internalize responsive initiatives that would enhance measures to have a safer, more secure and crime-free Nigeria.
This, he claimed, will further eliminate all crime and establish a positive but productive mechanism against riots and other nefarious activities and trends.
He stressed that the PPCC performs a monitoring platform for the promotion of cordial relations between the police and citizens.
”It is the initiative of the Ministry to ensure that brutality never finds ground against citizens within the space of police operational conduct.
“The current government will ensure that there is no turning back to leave a peaceful, secure and united Nigeria as a better nation than it was when it took office in 2015,” the minister said.
He urged the public to view the PPCC as a responsive avenue aimed at fostering synergy and illicit trust among Nigerians in relation to the conduct and activities of the force.

"With PPCC, we will be more committed in synergy towards a safer, more secure and peaceful nation for the prosperity of citizens," he assured.
Sokoto Sultan Sa'ad Abubakar, represented by Aliyu Baraden-Wamakko, praised the federal government for the initiative that would give ordinary citizens more confidence and courage to voice their grievances where their rights have been trampled.
However, Abubakar called on the minister to ensure the establishment of a similar committee in all 774 local government areas in the country.
Also speaking, Rev. Fr. Nuhu Iliya of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, thanked the organizers and noted that it will strengthen public confidence in the police force.
Mr. Iliya explained that Sokoto had been peaceful and that both Christians and Muslims were carrying out activities without discrimination.
He expressed concern about the growing insecurity that has deepened public fears as a result of the killings.
“Nigerians are not happy with the killings across the country. We are convinced that with the PPCC our minds will be sensitized to positive results”, he pointed out.
The Muslim representative and district chief of Gagi, Sani Umar-Jabbi, described the initiative as a genuine way of channeling complaints and involving the bases.
Mr. Umar-Jabbi called on the Muslim congregation to support the push for peace and unity of all towards justice, fairness and equity against any form of police brutality and violation of their rights.
He noted that public trust in the police was a sensitive issue that he believed the PPCC would address in light of current security challenges.
The traditional ruler emphasized the need for Nigerians to adopt family planning mechanisms to have an adequate population growth that allows families and authorities to overcome security challenges and efferent management.
He urged the government at all levels to become stronger and invest more in insecurity, as the country was rapidly growing demographically amid the crises.
Sokoto state government representative Abdulkadir Ahmed said the establishment of the committee was a positive sign that the federal government's commitment to reforming the police force was not in doubt.
Ahmed noted that police and public relations in Sokoto were friendly, emphasizing that "what we see at checkpoints and other service points shows how friendly we are in Sokoto."
Committee members included government officials, representatives of human rights agencies, youth organizations, non-governmental organizations.

The Bauchi State Judiciary says it has launched investigations into alleged N11.4 billion fraudulent contract deals perpetrated by some court workers in the state.
The state's chief judge, Justice Rabi Umar, said this at a press conference on the sidelines of the swearing-in of the 31 commissioners for the Shari'ah Court of Appeal swearing-in in Bauchi on Tuesday.
Ms. Umar said that the judiciary had launched an investigation into some High Court staff who engaged in fraudulent contractual relationships with various companies worth N11.4 billion, without the knowledge of the authorities.
She that the measure was imperative to stop the decline in the judiciary.
“The recent directive I gave for investigation was the cases where some High Court staff established a contractual relationship with various companies worth billions of naira using forged stamps, letterhead from the Chief Registrar’s office and forms without our knowledge. authority or consent as follows:
“Daneejow N162,000,000 supplied 6,000 bags of rice; Nakuwa Nig. Enterprise N168,000,000 supplied 6,000 bags of rice; Anieco Global Synergy Ltd. N1,080,000,000 to supply 4,000 laptops.
“Kommy Foods and Braids LTD N2,200,000 to supply 1,800 bags of rice; YK Priority N3,100,000,000 to supply 10,000 Lady motorcycles; Task Systems N1,100,000,000 to supply 500 units of laptops.
“Mabs Resources Ltd. N5,750,000,000 to supply Keke NAPEP 500 Units; Rockchuks Resources International Ltd. N56,000,000 to supply 1,800 bags of rice and Khusufah Nig. Ltd. N50,400,000 to supply 400 bags of rice.
“In one case where the victims of the fraudulent activities complained directly to the EFCC, the staff were investigated and charged in court by the Commission and are currently on trial.
“Another similar case was about four months ago, when some High Court staff defrauded a Kaduna State company using forged documents from the Bauchi State High Court.
“The company requested them from the AIG Zone 12, Bauchi. They were investigated, charged in court by the police and subsequently held in Correctional Service facilities,” he said.
According to her, all the fraudulent contractual transactions are carried out by the staff to defraud innocent people with the full support and active collusion of their godfathers who operate behind the scenes and share in the profits of the fraud.
Ms. Umar said there were some corrupt elements within the judiciary in the state who had her personal forms, receipts and stamps, using her boys to deprive the state government of revenue and defraud unsuspecting members of the public.
He said that the staff who perpetrate these acts do so with the active collusion, support and encouragement of their godparents, who are now resorting to the use of religious sentiment to cause discord between the High Court and the Sharia Court of Appeal.
The judiciary, he said, had introduced new court forms with security features in line with the modern trend available in most states and jurisdictions to control the threat of corruption and revenue leakage.
“We have printed court forms with security features such as affidavits, probate and other necessary forms, after observing with dismay that some disgruntled members of our staff have their personal forms, receipts and even stamps that they use and convert money to their personal use, thus depriving the government of revenue.
“The Chief Registrar and the Chairman of the Board of the Internal Revenue Service met and agreed on the modalities that a certain percentage will be paid to the High Court to defray the cost of printing the security forms, while most of the proceeds will be remitted to the state government.
"After starting the process, the income generated by the High Court in the months of November and December 2021, registered a significant improvement, all of which remitted to the account of the state government," he said.
Ms. Umar expressed her dismay at the rumors being spread by selfish people to disrupt the noble process of sanitizing the court of corrupt staff.
“I was shocked when my good intention of moving the state forward was twisted by some disgruntled elements with malicious intent who started spreading rumors and raising false alarms that I appointed a Chief Registrar who is a Christian to undermine the religion of Islam.”
Ms. Umar said that her religion enjoined her to be fair and just to all kinds of people, regardless of belief, creed or tribe.
The Deputy Inspector General (AIG) of the Police, Lawan Jimeta, assumed his duties in Benin on Thursday as the new AIG, Zone 5, which includes the states of Edo and Delta.
The Nigerian News Agency reports that Jimeta replaced AIG Ahmad Abdurrahman who was reassigned to Police Academy (POLAD), Wudi, Kano State.
Speaking with him shortly after taking office, Jimeta said he would be ruthless with any official in the area who was seen as corrupt.
“I abhor corruption and therefore I will deal decisively with any officer who is corrupt or perceived to be corrupt.
“So officers in the area are expected to wake up to their duties, be diligent and also serve the public humanely.
“They should prevent corruption in whatever form it takes and ensure that they respect human rights, as well as being professional in their conduct,” he said.
The AIG said Edo and Delta states were familiar terrain for him, having previously served in Edo as Police Commissioner.
He added that his tenure in the state as a former police commissioner had exposed him to the terrain, the challenges and how best to address the challenges.
The AIG assured that it would use the experience accumulated at that time to address the security problems in the area.
Jimeta also said that he will be guided by the Police Inspector General, Usman Álcali, and will rely on them to ensure that the objectives are achieved.
In addition, he promised to work in harmony with the police commissioners in the area to ensure that crime and criminality are contained in the area.
In his statements, AIG Ahmad Abdurrahman, who handed over command to Jimeta, said that it was generally normal for the force to move officers from one place to another in the shortest time possible.
According to him, we are regiments, we are men of the discipline force, so when they instruct you, you obey.
He explained that his redeployment was simply an exchange of offices between him and the new AIG, Jimeta, and called on the citizens of the two states to cooperate with the new AIG.
“He is an experienced and very disciplined officer, and I know that in the shortest possible time people in the area will get the good leadership that they deserve and have been longing for,” Abdurrahman said.
reports that Jimeta served as CP Edo, from November 2019 to June 2020, CP Bauchi from June 2020 to March 2021, Commander POLAD, Wudi, Kano State from March 2021, prior to his current redeployment as AIG, zone 5.Keep reading

The Inspector General of Police, IGP, Usman Baba, ordered the Police Commissioners, CP, in the 36 states and the FCT to coordinate crime prevention strategies for the yuletide.
This is contained in a statement from the Force Public Relations Officer, FPRO, Frank Mba, on Friday in Abuja.
The IGP also directed its supervising Assistant Police Inspectors General, AIG, to ensure the implementation of such strategies.
He directed the CPs and AIGs to ensure 24-hour visibility patrols towards the peaceful Christmas and New Years celebrations.
According to him, achieving a crime- and crisis-free yuletide is a top priority for the force.
Baba promised to ensure adequate security throughout the period of the celebration and beyond.
He said AIGs and PCs had been instructed to massively deploy human, intelligence and other operational force assets at their disposal in all public places.
He said the deployment in residential areas, places of worship, recreational centers, financial institutions, markets, motor parks, major highways, airports, railway stations, among others, was to protect citizens and critical national infrastructure.
The IGP warned personnel deployed for duties during the season, particularly those assigned to secure roads across the country, to desist from unprofessional acts.
He urged citizens to cooperate with officers deployed for assignments in compliance with the law, ensuring that the force would remain sensitive to issues of rights violations and unlawful use of force.
