The Police Service Commission (PSC) has warned against illegal transfers of police commissioners, as the 2019 elections draw near. 

Speaking on the recent transfers in the force, the PSC commissioner, Hajiya Naja’atu Muhammad, told newsmen at the police headquarters in Jigawa state that every transfer carried out by the police without the endorsement of the police service commission is null and void.

Naja’atu noted that “What has happened in the past is that the former commission abdicated their responsibilities and handed it over to the IG, it has never been the responsibility of the IG to make transfers.

She said Nigerians must be aware that there were some illegalities in the past, stressing that the PSC intends to stop every form of illegalities.
