The Police Service Commission would be deploying its staff to monitor Police conducts during the Saturday, 21st June, 2014, gubernatorial election. This is in line with the Commission’s constitutional mandate of ensuring discipline in the Force and also to ensure that Police Officers on election duties adhere strictly to the rules of engagement which is to maintain peace and security of lives and properties.
The Police Service Commission at its 5th plenary meeting held on the 4th and 9th of June, 2014 in Abuja considered and approved Thirty Two (32) disciplinary cases involving Senior Police Officers (SPOs).
The Honourable Chairman, Police Service Commission, Sir, Mike Mbama Okiro condoles the families, people of Kano and Anambra States and Nigeria as a whole over the death of Alhaji Ado Bayero, the Emir of Kano and Prof. Dora Akunyili, former Director General, NAFDAC and Information Minister.
Okiro describes the dead of the duo that occurred in quick succession as catastrophic and at a time when Nigeria needed their services and wealth of experience the more. He noted that though they are dead, their foot-prints and legacies which are unquantifiable will continue to live on.
The attention of the Police Service Commission has been drawn to the activities of some faceless and spurious groups, who had been trying to deceive the public into believing that the Commission is recruiting Cadet Inspectors and Assistant Superintendents of Police, and in the process extorting money from them through sales of recruitment forms.
