Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu’s 2019 recruitment of 10,000 constables has been nullified by an Appeal Court.
The appellate court delivered the unanimous judgement delivered on Wednesday September 20th.
It held that power to carry out the recruitment was exclusively that of the Police Service Commission (PSC).
The judgment delivered by the court of appeal insisted that the IGP lacked the power to make the recruitment for the police force.
Hence, it upturned the December 2nd, 2019 verdict of a federal high court in Abuja.
