Retired AIG Lawal, others appointed to monitor police conduct in North East

The Police Service Commission, PSC, has appointed retired AIG Bawa Lawal as the coordinator for the North West to monitor the conduct of police personnel in the general election.

The appointment was contained in a statement issued by Mr Ikechukwu Ani, the Head of Press and Public Relations of PSC in Abuja.

Ani said Lawal, a Commissioner of the PSC, was earlier appointed to coordinate the zone with Mrs Najatu Mohammed, also a commissioner with the commission.

He said the appointment of Lawal followed objections raised by the All Progressives Congress Presidential campaign Council on the appointment of Mohammed.

Ani said Mohammed, the commissioner representing Women Interest and the North West, was earlier appointed as one of the coordinators for the region in the general elections.

The campaign council, he said, described the appointment as not only “callous, but insensitive and therefore, unacceptable.

“The commission wishes to state with all sense of responsibility that its commissioners representing different geopolitical zones have always supervised assignments of the Commission in the geopolitical zones they represent.

“The commission has, however, decided to mandate Lawal, who is from the same geopolitical Zone with Mohammed to take over the coordination of the monitoring of Police Conduct in the zone.

“The commission will always be sensitive to the wishes of Nigerians and will continue to contribute its quota to the sustenance of the nation’s democracy,” he said.
