 In apparent violation of the order of a Federal High Court in Abuja, the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, yesterday approved the release of a list of successful candidates in the controversial recruitment of 10,000 police constables.

The release of the list was approved despite the court’s ruling that the Police and the Police Service Commission should maintain the status quo.

The Police Service Commission had dragged the Police to court over its role in the recruitment of police constables.

Justice Inyang Ekwo of the Federal High Court Abuja, had ordered the parties to stay action on the matter pending the determination of the suit, which was adjourned till November 4.

The IGP 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.

All the successful candidates are to report at the police college/training schools indicated against their states.
