The Kano Judicial Division of the National Industrial Court has directed the Inspector General of Police and the Police Service Commission to reinstate a police officer, Mr Abdullahi Abubakar, to the substantive rank of Assistant Commissioner of Police and report compliance to the court on the 20 January, 2016.

The order given on the 9 December, 2015, by the presiding judge Lawal Mani, followed an ex-parte application filed on by counsel to Abubakar, Barrister Muktar Musa praying the court to direct the defendants to fully comply with the earlier judgment of the court delivered on May 21, 2014 and reaffirmed on December 9, 2014.

Musa argued that the defendants had refused to obey the judgment of the court that directed them to reinstate his client to the rank of assistant commissioner of police being the rank he was promoted to on the 14 August, 2012.
