Abuja (Sundiata Post) – Chairman Senate Committee on Navy, Senator Isah Hamma Misau has been summoned to appear before the Special Panel investigating allegations surrounding the now rested recommendations on Special promotions in the Nigerian Police Force on Wednesday, September 6, 2017 at exactly 11am.
The letter also stated that the major reason of the invitation is to investigate the genuineness or otherwise of the two letters of retirement supposed to have emanated from the police Service commission in connection with his retirement.
Sundiata Post recalls that Senator Isah Hamman Misau recently accused the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris of extorting money, ranging from N10m to N15m, from Commissioners of Police, State Mobile Commanders and Special Protection Units (SPU) Commanders, for favourable postings.
Misau also said that the level of corruption being perpetrated by the current Inspector-General of Police and the Chairman, Police Service Commission, IGP Mike Okiro (Rtd.), was so alarming and capable of undermining the anti-corruption stance of President Muhammadu Buhari.
The Commission in a letter signed by the Chairman of the Special Panel ,Hon. Justice O. Adekeye, a retired Justice of the Supreme Court, titled, “Re: Retirement from the Nigeria Police Force of AP 57300 DSP Mohammed Isah Hamma – Invitation to appear before Police Service Commission Panel” stated that the immediate issue for investigation is the genuineness or otherwise of the two letters of Retirement supposed to have emanated from the Police Service Commission in connection with this retirement”.
It noted that it received correspondence from the Nigeria Police Force Special Investigation Panel (SIP) Force Headquarters dated 28th August, 2017 relating to the Senators retirement from the Nigeria Police Force.
According to the letter, “The Police Service Commission, the only organ saddled with the statutory responsibility of issuing letters of retirement to all Police Officers except the IGP has a vital role to play in determining the authenticity of this letter”
Senator Misau is invited to appear before the panel with the original copy of his letter of retirement for authentication.
