The Inspector-General of Police, IGP M.A Adamu, NPM, mni, has vetted and given approval for the release of the final and authenticated list of successful candidates who participated in the ongoing recruitment exercise into the Nigeria Police Force.
This development is coming a day after a Federal High Court in Abuja ordered parties in the suit challenging the recruitment of 10,000 police constables to stay any action in the interim.
The Police Service Commission (PSC) had taken the Nigeria Police Force to court over the recruitment of 10,000 constables as approved by President Mohammadu Buhari.
The suit with the number, FHC/ABJ/CS/1124/2019, was filed by the plaintiff’s counsel, Kanu Agabi.
The defendants in the suit are the Nigeria Police Force (first), the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Adamu Mohammed (second) and the Minister of Police Affairs (third).
The judge, Inyang Ekwo, held that this is necessary since parties have submitted themselves to court for settlement of the matter. “Stay within bound until the matter is determined. You have submitted yourself to court, abide by the rule of law,” Mr Ekwo held.
The counsel representing the defendants, Alex Izinyon’s effort to prevail on the court that the police had already concluded the recruitment and the list of successful candidates had been released was refused by the court.
“Parties should not go beyond what it is now,” the court ruled.
Below is the list of successful candidates:
