“The Police Service Commission (PSC) has debunked a publication Report that quoted the commission as saying “it will Dismiss Police officers who fail to return to work”.
The commission in a statement made available to urban Express-News Online through the commission head of Press and Public Relation, Okechukwu Ani said the attention of the commission had been drawn to a publication on October 31st, 2020 in a news platform Saying the commission “will Dismiss Police officers who fail to return to work” not to be true reflection what was said.
His word: “the commission wishes to state that it did not at any time say police will be dismissed, adding; “that the commission only condemned the killing of police officers on legitimate duties and had warned that any attempt to make the country lawless will be an ill wind that will blow the country no good”.
Ani said the commission can only plead with the officers to in the spirit of nationalism return to work while government work out enough protection programmes for them.
“The commission will continue to do its job, adding that being employers of the police is pained that policemen were killed and station set ablaze throughout the country as it will be very insensitive at this point for anyone to say that the commission will dismiss any policeman who didn’t return to work”.
“The commission is at present morning the deaths of its gallant officers who were killed in the crisis, the statement read!
