Police Inspector Dismissed for Alleged Theft, Three Officers Demoted

A police inspector named Adabo Mohammed has been fired from the force due to his suspected involvement in robbery and kidnapping cases in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

According to Nigeria Police Force spokesperson Muyiwa Adejobi, Mohammed and five others were allegedly part of an armed robbery gang. They are accused of stealing N29.8 million during a robbery in the Gwagwalada area of Abuja. Additionally, Mohammed is implicated in the kidnapping of Ikechukwu Emmanuel Okafor in the Tunga Maje area, where a ransom of N4.4 million was collected. Mohammed has been charged and will face court proceedings.

In addition to Mohammed’s dismissal, the Inspector-General of Police, Kayode Egbetokun, has approved the demotion of three inspectors to the rank of sergeant due to their alleged involvement in extortion.

The demoted officers as Osagie Efford, Semiu Agbekin, and Francis Ahuen, who were attached to the special tactical squad (STS) in the FCT. It was gathered that they intercepted an unregistered Mercedes Benz at the Gwarinpa area of the territory and “forced the occupants to part with the total sum of N29.4m”.

Adejobi added;

“While the monies have been returned to the complainants, the officers were subjected to orderly room trial in line with extant laws, and have been demoted.”
