Mr Aaron Kaase is a public officer with Nigeria’s Police Service Commission (PSC) with a principled opposition to systemic fraud and abuse of office in public life. His stance led to a plot of persecution at work and human rights violations, including frivolous criminal prosecution based on manufactured narratives aimed at silencing him after he blew the whistle to reveal serious allegations of possible fraud in the PSC involving the Chairman and Nigeria’s former Inspector-General of Police, Mr. Mike Okiro.
The acts of persecution against Kaase arose from his complaint reporting administrative fraud and abuse of authority by Chairman Okiro. Kaase has been placed under indefinite and wrongful, unpaid suspension from work, and threats to his life and safety.
As a whistle-blower, Kaase must be fully protected under Nigeria’s Freedom of Information (FOI) Act, and under international law from all forms of persecution.
