Over 100 senior police officers facing discipline probe

The Nigeria Police Force says 130 senior police officers having Pending Disciplinary Matters (PDM) are appearing before the Force Disciplinary Committee (FDC) at the Force Headquarters (FHQ) in Abuja.

The ongoing probe, which began on June 28, will end tomorrow.

Force Public Relations Officer (FPRO) Olumuyiwa Adejobi, a Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP), announced this in a statement yesterday in Abuja.

The statement reads: “A total of 130 senior police officers from all over the country with Pending Disciplinary Matters (PDM) will appear before the committee within this period.

“The officers comprise two Commissioners of Police, three Assistant Commissioners of Police, 11 Chief Superintendents of Police, 19 Superintendents of Police, 18 Deputy Superintendents of Police, and 77 Assistant Superintendents of Police.

“Upon conclusion of proceedings and hearing of evidence, recommendations on each matter will be communicated to the Police Service Commission (PSC) for consideration.

“The IGP has expressed confidence in the DIGs overseeing the Force Disciplinary Committee ensure dispensation of justice in all cases before them. The IGP equally assures that the Force is deliberately committed to cleaning up its house for a more professional and citizens-focused policing system.”
