Abuja - The Mike Okiro-led Police Service Commission has been ordered to refund to the government treasury the sum of N133.4 million out of the N350 million it received from the Federal Government, Vanguard reports.
The money was given to the commission by the Federal Government for the monitoring of the conduct of the 2015 elections.
The ICPC, which investigated the allegation of fund diversion levelled against Okiro, said that although it did not find any act of criminal infraction against him, the balance of the money must be returned to the government.

The outcome of the ICPC investigation indicated that while the PSC under Okiro budgeted and collected money for 900 police officers and men who were to be trained in Lagos, Kano and Abuja, only 391 staff were actually trained in Abuja.
The commission also directed that the sum of N11 million which was collected by staff who pretended to have travelled out of Abuja by air but actually monitored election within Abuja and its environs, be returned with immediate effect to the Federal treasury.
