The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has disregarded the Federal High Court’s order restraining him from going ahead with the process of recruiting over 10,000 police officers in the country.
Justice Inyang Ekwo had on Wednesday, ordered IGP and the Police Service Commission, PSC, to maintain a status quo on the ongoing recruitment of 10, 000 officers
Mr Ekwo gave the order at the hearing of the case brought by the PSC against the IGP, asking it to stop Mr Adamu from continuing the recruitment exercise for usurping the power of the commission.
The judge then adjourned the matter till November 4 for mention.
However, in a post by a verified Twitter handle of the Nigerian police, @policeng, the force wrote: “List of successful candidates in the 2019 recruitment exercise into the Nigerian police force 24th October 2019.
“The IGP has vetted and given the final and authorised list of successful candidates who participated in the ongoing recruitment exercise into the Nigeria Police Force.
“Below is the list of successful candidates: https://www.npf.gov.ng/information/index.php,” the post added.
