The Police Service Commission (PSC) has said some Police Commissioners in charge of commands are under investigation.
The commission explained that the investigation was imperative following official complaints and petitions of alleged abuse of office received against them.
The latest of such petition was from Concerned Citizens of Edo State, who were at the commission in Abuja yesterday to register their grievances.
They complained about the performance of the Commissioner of Police in Edo State Haliru Gwandu.
The leader of the group, Henry Okpeme, complained of the collapse of security in Edo State, adding that there was an alarming increase in high profile assassinations, kidnapping and rape.
The group called for the redeployment of the CP for alleged compromise.
Reacting to their complaint, the Permanent Secretary and Secretary to the Commission, Musa Istifanus, said the commission would sanction any officer found culpable.
This was contained in a statement issued in Abuja yesterday by the commission’s spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani.
Istifanus said the commission has received several complaints and petitions against some Commissioners of Police, who are allegedly going against laid down rules and regulations.
He noted that the commission would take serious action against any of the CPs found to have compromised his office.
He urged the group to remain calm, lawful and allow the commission to do the needful, promising that the issues raised in their petition will be addressed.
Efforts to get Gwandu to react to the allegations failed as he refused to pick his call despite several attempts.
