A Federal High Court in Abuja has ordered the Inspector – General of Police, Mohammed Adamu to appear on February fourth over his continued disobedience to court order.
He is expected to show cause why contempt charges should not be filed against him which might land him in prison.
The court summon was said to have been served on Adamu at the Force Headquarters in Abuja.
Justice Ijeoma Ojukwu issued the summon against the IGP following his alleged refusal to reinstate a Deputy Commissioner of Police, Patrick Okoli who was forcefully retired.
The court had set aside the forceful retirement of Okoli on the ground that due process was not followed.
The court had also imposed a fine of Ten Million Naira as punitive cost against the Police authorities.
