BREAKING: Great Victory For IGP Adamu, As Federal High Court Delivers Powerful Judgement, Today

The Federal High Court, in Abuja, has on Monday, upheld the power of the Nigeria Police Force, NPF, and the Police Council under the control of the Inspector-General of Police, IGP, Mohammed Adamu, to recruit constables into the NPF.

Justice Inyang Ekwo, in his judgment, dismissed the suit filed by the Police Service Commission, PSC, to challenge the power of the NPF and the IGP, to carry out the ongoing exercise of recruiting 10,000 Police Constables.

The Judge held that the PSC’s case lacked merit.

The Judge added that the law guiding the enlistment of Constables into the NPF, is the Nigeria Police Regulations of 1968, issued by the Nigerian President, in accordance with the provisions of section 46 of the Police Act 1967 (No 41), providing for the organisation and administration of the Police Force.
