The police service commission (PSC) says it has approved the dismissal of one assistant commissioner of police (ACP) and three assistant superintendents of police (ASP) over cases of indiscipline.
In a statement on Wednesday, Ikechukwu Ani, spokesman of the commission, said one ASP was compulsorily retired while a superintendent of police (SP), two DSPs and one ASP were demoted.
Ani said decisions were taken at the commission’s plenary in Abuja.
He said eight senior police officers were given severe reprimand while six others received the punishment of reprimand.
The spokesman said while four officers received warning letters, one got a letter of advice and seven others were exonerated.
“It considered and approved the compulsory retirement of three officers, who also appealed their punishments and affirmed its earlier decision on the reinstatement of two other officers,” Ani said.
He said 11 appeals were rejected while approval was given for the promotion of one deputy superintendent of police (ASP).
He added that the decisions have been conveyed to Ibrahim Idris, inspector-general of police, for implementation.
