The Police Service Commission (PSC) and a former Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG), Joseph Mbu, have told the National Industrial Court that they are still discussing an out of court settlement in the suit filed against the commission by the retired officer.

Mr Mbu had filed the suit at the court against his compulsory retirement from the police.

At the resumed sitting for a Report of Settlement, the judge, Sanusi Kado, asked the claimant’s counsel, Bendo Hassan, on the position of the negotiation among the parties.

Mr Hassan in his response said that parties had explored an alternative of resolving the issue amicably out of court.

He explained that they had come up with settlement as agreed upon by parties.

Mr Hassan, however, said some directors of the commission, who were supposed to sign their part of the Terms of Settlement on behalf of the commission, travelled out of town for the ongoing police recruitment exercise.

Mr Kado, therefore, adjourned the case until November 6 for Report of Settlement or adoption of Terms of Settlement.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the retired AIG was the Commandant of Police Staff College until his retirement in 2016.
