Following what they referred to as deliberate misrepresentation and falsehood about the recently concluded recruitment exercise, the workers union of the Police Service Commission has called for the removal of Inspector General of Police Kayode Egbetokun.

Recall that last Saturday, the police in a statement alleged that the process was marred by corruption and other irregularities thereby rejecting the recruitment, an allegation denied by the Joint Union Congress of the PSC.

Speaking with newsmen on Wednesday, the Chairman, Joint Union Congress of the Police Service Commission, Adoyi Augustine Adoyi stated that the action of the IG was against his profession.

His words, “We begin this press conference with a clarion call on the President and Commander in Chief of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Bola Tinubu to immediately relieve the IGP, Kayode Egbetokun of his appointment as IGP.

“Our concern comes from the fact that a public officer who misleads the president is causing confusion in the country and may lead to chaos which is antithetical to his duty as a police officer.

“His attitude has become only a replica of the biblical Haman who in deceiving his principal wanted to wipe out an entire nation but for the timely intervention of God. So we call on the president to responsibly relieve him of his duties for the following reasons.”

Emphasizing that some elements within the police force attempted to smuggle over 1000 names into the recruitment list, Adoyi said, “We have been furnished with reliable information indicating that elements within the Police Force attempted to smuggle over 1,000 names into the recruitment list.

“This manipulation was a grave breach of the recruitment process and a calculated attempt to undermine the credibility of the entire exercise.

While describing the allegations levelled by the IG against the commission as false, unfounded and spurious, Adoyi said, “”The allegations of fraud and several unwholesome acts levelled against the Police Service Commission and its staff are, to say the least, unfounded, spurious, speculative and most irresponsible, especially by the way the allegations were thrown into the public space even before official channel of communication for dealing with such a matter was explored. “
