The power tussle between the Nigeria Police Force and the Police Service Commission (PSC) over the recruitment of 10,000 constables approved by President Mohammadu Buhari might have taken a new dimension as the commission has dragged the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Adamu Mohammed, to court.

Thisday reports that the PSC has also suspended all promotion exercises in the Police. The promotion of the Lagos State Commissioner for Police, Mu’azu  Zubairu, and others are are major casualties caught in the crossfire.

The commission also withdrew all delegated powers to the police, including discipline and promotion of rank and file up to inspectorate cadre.

THISDAY quoted a “competent source” that the commission had filed a law suit seeking a restraining order barring the IG from usurping the powers of the commission.

The suit is also seeking the interpretation of the powers of the commission to handle recruitment, promotion, discipline and other constitutional powers of the commission. (THISDAY)
