The Police Service Commission (PSC) and the Inspector General of Police, Mohammed Adamu had been ordered to maintain the status quo on the ongoing recruitment of 10,000 officers.

The PSC had brought the matter before the court, asking it to stop Mr Adamu from continuing the recruitment exercise for usurping the powers of the commission.
The matter has been adjourned till November 4 for mention.
