- The Nigeria Police Force state that Senator Misau is still under investigation for alleged fraud
- The force spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood, asks the lawmaker to report at his last duty post, Niger state police command, where he allegedly deserted the force as DSP
- He says the senator was found wanting for lying under oath based on various affidavits he sworn to at his point of entry into the force
The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) have insisted that chairman of the Senate committee on navy, Senator Hamman Misau, remains a deserter despite the statement by the Police Service Commission (PSC) that the senator duly retired from the force.
NAIJ.com had reported that Senator Misau was declared wanted after he alleged that the police authority was enmeshed in fraud.
The police had stated that Misau was wanted for allegedly forgery his retirement letter and desertion from the force among other things.
However, the Police Service Commission (PSC) had, on Wednesday, September 6, cleared Misau of the allegation of forgery leveled against him by the police on his letter of retirement.
The Tribune reported that Misau retirement letter was confirmed by chairman of the commission, Mike Okiro, who said the letter was issued by the commission based on the recommendation from the force headquarters.
But the force spokesperson, Jimoh Moshood, on Thursday, September 7, said the Senator was still under investigation for alleged fraud.
Moshood made the statement when addressing some protesters who had converged at the PSC office, federal secretariat, Abuja, in support of the police over the investigation being carried out against Misau on the authenticity of his letter of retirement.
The spokesperson called on the senator to report at his last duty post, Niger state police command, where he allegedly deserted the force as DSP.
Moshood said the senator was found wanting for lying under oath based on various affidavits he sworn to at his point of entry into the force.

The lawmakers made this accusation in reaction to the retirement saga involving the police force and a member of the Senate.
