Misau, a retired police officer revealed this while reacting to the bribery scandal allegedly rocking the PSC.
He said: “A serving police officer aware of the trend has told me that they pay as much as N2.5 million to get special promotion. Other sources have also confirmed to me. So it is nothing but fact.’’
Misau, who is a member of the anti-corruption committee of the Senate said when the Senate resume from annual recess next month, he would discuss the issue with the leadership of the Senate.
“We cannot just fold our hands and allow this to continue. The special promotion should be reversed as it was done during the time of Nuhu Ribadu. Unless this is done the lives of Nigerians would no longer be secured. The special promotion is highly compromised.
“Corruption is not only associated with money, it has many forms and money for promotion is part of it. We have to urgently address this because the consequence is what we are witness today,’’ he said.
