The Nigeria Police Force has finally released an email for disgruntled officers to lodge their complaints on the recently released list of promoted officers by the Police Service Commission, Nigeria’s integrated online media platform, ALEDEH can report.
ALEDEH recalls that the PSC approved the promotion of 3,665 senior Police officers. The promotion was one of the high points of the Commission’s 28 Plenary Meeting which ended in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital on Friday, June 8, 2018. The Plenary Meeting was the last official function of the Dr Mike Mbama Okiro PSC Board whose tenure came to an end on Monday, June 11, 2018.
Investigations carried out by ALEDEH had uncovered massive irregularities, corruption and illegalities in the promotion of the officers of the Nigeria Police Force which was conducted by the Mike Okiro-led board of the Police Service Commission.

Findings by ALEDEH reveals that Police officers now pay to leave Benue, Nasarawa and other states that are suffering insecurity, a situation most of the officers who spoke with this online medium said will continue except a drastic action is taken as soon as possible.
These findings, ALEDEH published in its exclusive report titled: EXCLUSIVE: “Police Officers Pay N2 Million For Promotion”, Buhari, Osinbajo’s Orderlies, FPRO Benefit, which has generated massive interest from the police officers and the general public.
Following the controversies which trailed the recently released list of promoted officers, the force has now moved to hear complaints from the disgruntled officers by releasing an email: “firstname.lastname@example.org” where the complaints can be lodged.
