Workers protest police recruitment, shut down PSC headquarters

The Police Service Commission workers have shut down the PSC headquarters, Abuja, over the reported takeover of the ongoing recruitment of 10,000 constables by the force headquarters.

The workers forced the Permanent Secretary, William Alo, and directors out of their offices as they declared a three-day warning strike with effect from today.

The staff are protesting the alleged takeover of the ongoing constables recruitment exercise, lack of staff promotion and training by the management.

Workers had declared a showdown with the commission management led by Musiliu Smith, a retired Inspector-General of Police, whom they accused of surrendering the PSC constitutional mandate to the police.
