A Nigerian Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, on Monday, had dismissed the Police Service Commission (PSC)’s suit, challenging Muhammad Adamu, Inspector-General (I-G) of Police’s power to recruit 10, 000 police officers.
Justice Inyang Ekwo, while delivering his judgement, said the PSC’s suit lacked merit.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the PSC had taken the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) to court over the recruitment of 10,000 constables.
In the motion on notice filed on Sept. 24, the commission prayed the court for an order of interlocutory injunction restraining the defendants from ”appointing, recruiting or attempting to appoint or recruit by any means whatsoever any person into any office by the NPF pending the hearing and determination of the substantive suit.”
