Police Academy Lecturer Petitions PSC Over Alleged Document Mutilation


A lecturer with the Nigeria Police Academy, Wudil in Kano State, Dr. Goddy Igbaekemen, has petitioned the Police Service Commission (PSC) over the alleged mutilation and removal of documents from his official records.

A copy of the petition, signed by the counsel for the lecturer,  Thomas Shachia was made available to the News Agency of Nigeria in Abuja on Sunday.

Igbaekemen alleged that the mutilation and removal of the document from his record was to frustrate and deny him a promotion duly approved by the academy in 2015.

According to him, the letter on which the approval was conveyed was mutilated, removed from his official record and concealed by individuals bent on frustrating him.

The lecturer said the anomaly was discovered after several efforts and an official letter to the registrar of the academy, seeking retrieval of the document.

Igbaekemen said his travail in the Academy started with his unlawful disengagement from service in 2016.

He said he was later reinstated after the intervention of the National Assembly (NASS) Committee on Petitions.

The lecturer added that the NASS had resolved that the termination of his employment was unlawful.

The petitioner however said despite the National Assembly resolution, he has been denied all promotions.

“For the avoidance of doubt, I am eminently qualified to be promoted and conferred with the status of a professor,” he said.

The lecturer,  however, said that the Academy has neither promoted him nor paid his necessary arrears to date.

Igbaekemen therefore, urged the Chairman of PSC, Dr Solomon Arase to direct the Commandant and Management of the Academy to release his promotion letter.

He also called on the chairman to mandate the academy to properly place him in his deserved position of a professor and pay all his accrued entitlements.

Igbaekemen further appealed to the PSC chairman to direct the Inspector General of Police to immediately commence an investigation into the allegations raised in the petition.
