Sack IGP now, Police commission tells Tinubu

The Police Service Commission (PSC) on Wednesday urged President Bola Tinubu to promptly dismiss the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Kayode Egbetokun, accusing him of undermining the police recruitment process.

 

The PSC also refuted allegations of corruption leveled against it.

During a press briefing in Abuja, Adoyi Adoyi, Chairman of the Association of Senior Civil Servants of Nigeria (ASCSN) and Joint Union Congress of the PSC, expressed discontent over what he termed as false accusations against the Commission.

Over the weekend, the IGP, through a statement by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, claimed that the recruitment process was riddled with irregularities and corruption.

Adoyi countered these claims, revealing that there was reliable information suggesting that elements within the police force had attempted to insert over 1,000 names into the recruitment list clandestinely.

“This action undermines the integrity of the recruitment process and the credibility of the police force,” Adoyi stated, urging the President to act swiftly to maintain the integrity of the nation’s police recruitment.
