Police Service Commission Faults IGP, Says Misua’s Not Forged


By Nuel Suji – The Police Service Commission (PSC) has confirmed the retirement of Senator Isah Misau, dismissing claim by the Inspector General of Police that the letter of his retirement was forged.

The Commission said the Sen. Misau’s retirement from the Force followed due process, adding that it issued the letter to the Senator.

Sen. Misau had accused the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris of receiving N15 million for favorable postings and promotion at the same time receiving N10 billion from oil companies for special protection.

However, the Police authority in a swift reaction accused the Bauchi senator of deserting his duty post as police officer few years back, alleging that he forged his supposed retirement letter.

But the Commission has clarified that the letter was not forged and that the Senator’s retirement from the Force followed due process.

The panel of enquiry into the matter headed by Justice Olufunlola Adekeye revealed that the retirement letter was authentic and was even done based on recommendation from the Force Headquarters in Abuja.

The Commission’s Spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani said: “The Senator did not honour the invitation but the panel still went ahead to sit.

“At the meeting, the panel made some inquiry and they confirmed that the commission issued the letter and that it was based on recommendation for retirement from the Force Headquarters.

“The Police normally recommends people to us for retirement, so the recommendation came to the Commission and Misau’s name was included.

Ani further noted: “We just confirmed that the retirement followed due process. The letter was dated 5th March, 2014  to take  effect from the 1st of December 2010.

“The Commission has gone through their document and confirmed that we issued the letter with reference number;PSC/1034/V8/244.  What are simply saying is that we gave him the letter of retirement.”
