Police sack nine officers over recruitment fraud

The Police Service Commission on Tuesday announced the dismissal of nine senior officers from service over gross misconduct stemming from the 2011 recruitment exercise.

The police regulatory body also said six officers were demoted for official wrongdoings. All the disciplinary measured took immediate effect, according to a statement by PSC spokesperson Ikechukwu Ani.

Those dismissed included: Abdul Yahaya Ahmed, a superintendent of police who will also be prosecuted; Adamu Damji Abare, was demoted from chief police superintendent to police superintendent before being dismissed.

The PSC asked Inspector-General Mohammed Adamu to provide updates on some other officers who were also culpable in Mr Abare’s offence but who still remained at large.

The officers were recommended for punishment alongside Mr Abare over their alleged misconduct in the 2011 recruitment exercise, the PSC said.
