The Federal High Court, Abuja, on Monday, struck out a suit filed by the Police Service Commission (PSC), challenging the power of the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, to recruit 10, 000 police constables.
Justice Inyang Ekwo said in his judgement that the Commission’s suit lacked merit.
The IGP, police and the Attorney –General of the Federation (AGF) are listed as defendants in the case.
The PSC had taken the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) to court over the police officers’ recruitment.
In the motion on notice filed on September 24, the Commission asked the court for an order of interlocutory injunction restraining the defendants from ”appointing, recruiting or attempting to appoint or recruit by any means whatsoever any person into any office by the NPF pending the hearing and determination of the substantive suit.”
