BREAKING: Court upholds IGP’s power to recruit

Amidst the controversy surrounding Police constables recruitment in the country, the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja on Monday has upheld the power of the Nigeria Police Force and the Police Council under the control of the Inspector-General of Police to recruit constables into the NPF.

Justice Inyang Ekwo while delivering his judgment dismissed the suit filed by the Police Service Commission to challenge the power of the NPF and the IGP, Mohammed Adamu to carry out the ongoing exercise of recruiting 10,000 police constables.

The case of the Police Service Commission was dismissed by the Judge saying that it lacked merit.

The judge held that the law guiding the enlistment of constables into the NPF was 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.
