Reports had it that PSC had demoted Assistant Commissioner of Police, ACP, Abayomi Shogunle and Chief Superintendent of Police, CSP, Dolapo Badmus.

A list reportedly submitted by the Presidential Panel on Police Reforms surfaced on Saturday including names and service numbers of 37 officers alleged to have been recommended for dismissal and demotion.
Reacting, PSC spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani described the reports as incorrect.
Ani explained that PSC was yet to meet, hence the report was incorrect.
