The Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on dismissed the Service Commission (PSC)’s suit, challenging Inspector-General Muhammad Adamu’s power to recruit 10, 000 police officers.

Justice Inyang Ekwo, who delivered the judgement, said the PSC’s suit lacked merit.

The Service Commission had taken the 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.”

While the PSC is the plaintiff, the Inspector-General (I-G) of Police, Muhammad Adamu, the NPF and the AGF are defendants in the case.
