Some 300 police personnel attached to the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Thursday failed to attend the meeting earlier called by the Inspector-General of Police, Mike Okiro.
Police authorities had last week directed all police personnel attached to the EFCC to report to the Force Headquarters, Abuja, for briefing.
News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the briefing could not hold as neither the EFCC Chairman, Nuhu Ribadu, nor any of its operatives reported for the meeting.
“The meeting was scheduled to commence at 10.00am, but you can see that it is 2.00pm and none of them is here,” a senior police officer told NAN.
Following the development, Okiro met with the police management to discuss the next line of action.
After the meeting, Okiro said he had directed that another letter, inviting the personnel for a briefing, be sent to the commission today.
Ribadu was nominated by Okiro to attend a 12-month Senior Management Course at the National Institute for Policy and Strategic Studies (NIPSS), Kuru near Jos.
