Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, has thrown out suit filed by the Police Service Commission (PSC)’s challenging Muhammad Adamu, Inspector-General (I-G) of Police’s power to recruit 10, 000 police officers.#
Delivering the judgement on Monday, Justice Inyang Ekwo said PSC’s suit lacked merit.
It will be recalled that 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.”
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.
