The Force Disciplinary Committee, FDC, has convened at the Inspector-General of Police Conference Hall, Force Headquarters, Abuja, to review disciplinary cases instituted against Senior Police Officers of the rank of Assistant Superintendent of Police and above, in order to determine their culpability or otherwise.

Fresh Angle International understands that the FDC, which comprises the seven Deputy Inspectors-General of Police as arbiters and the Assistant Inspector-General of Police Force Secretary as its secretary, began its session on Tuesday June 28 and will hold till Friday July 1.

A total of one hundred and thirty (130) Senior Police Officers from all over the country with Pending Disciplinary Matters (PDM) will appear before the Committee within this period.

The Officers, comprise 2 Commissioners of Police, 3 Assistant Commissioners of Police, 11 Chief Superintendents of Police, 19 Superintendents of Police, 18 Deputy Superintendents of Police and 77 Assistant Superintendents of Police.

Upon conclusion of proceedings and hearing of evidences, recommendations on each matter, will be communicated to the Police Service Commission, PSC for consideration.

The Inspector-General of Police, has reportedly expressed confidence in the Deputy Inspectors-General of Police overseeing the Force Disciplinary Committee to ensure dispensation of justice in all cases before them.

The IGP, Usman Alkali Baba, equally assured that the Force is deliberately committed to cleaning up its house for a more professional and citizens-focused policing system.

The Police Boss, equally announced that the Nigeria Police Force, is set to launch a digital solution to ensure standardization and upgrade of the Force identification system, to be known as e-Warrant Card.

The e-Warrant Card, would provide seamless identification of Officers all over the country as well as eliminate the possibility of criminal elements presenting fake identity cards at police stations, personating themselves to be police officers.

The project, which commenced with the approval of the IGP, is being carried out by Police ICT experts attached to the Department of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Force Headquarters, Abuja.

Upon its launch, it would engender a full digitalization of police identification nationwide and provide a valid basis for effecting arrests with warrants in line with extant laws and many other benefits attached to the use of such e-warrant cards.
