The Police Service Commission (PSC) has approved the dismissal of one Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) and the demotion of two other officers over alleged established cases of misconduct.

The officers who had their ranks reduced were a Superintendent of Police (SP) and an Assistant Superintendent (ASP).

This is contained in a statement signed by Mr Ikechukwu Ani, Head, Press and Public Relations of the commission, and issued to newsmen on Friday in Abuja.

It said the commission rejected 23 appeals from some dismissed Policemen for reinstatement and restoration of ranks.

The statement said the decisions were taken at the 15th Plenary Meeting of the commission presided by its Chairman, Mr Mike Okiro.

However, it said the commission had approved the reinstatement of 10 other Police Officers, exonerated three and committed the dismissal of three others to retirement.

The statement said one serving DSP and ASP received the punishments of severe reprimand, while an Assistant Commissioner, two DSPs and an ASP are to be issued letters of reprimand.

Besides, it said an SP will receive letter of warning while an ASP was exonerated.

Based on Court judgements, the statement said appeals from ex-Police Officers for reinstatement was approved by the commission which also endorsed the retirement of eight and rejected the appeals of 15 others.

It said the commission's decisions have since been communicated to the Inspector General of Police, Mr Solomon Arase, for implementation. (NAN)
