The Police Service Commission (PSC) has invited Sen. Isah Misau to appear before its special panel investigating allegations of special promotions in the Nigeria Police Force.
The senator, who is the chairman, Senate Committee on Navy, is expected to appear before the panel on Sept 6.
Concise News had reported that the Nigeria Police Force on Aug. 27 declared Misau a deserter and accused him of carrying a forged retirement letter.
In a series of interviews with newsmen, the senator accused the Inspector General of Police of taking bribes to post police officers as well as diverting money paid by private companies for police duties.
The head, Press and Public Relations of the commission, Ikechukwu Ani, made the announcement in a statement on Wednesday in Abuja.
Ani explained that the immediate issue for investigation is the genuineness or otherwise of the two letters of retirement supposed to have emanated from the commission.
He said the commission received correspondence from the Nigeria Police Force Special Investigation Panel (SIP) on Aug. 24 relating to Misau’s retirement from the Nigeria Police Force.
“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,” he said.
He said Misau is to appear before the panel with the original copy of his letter of retirement for authentication.
