At least 10 senior police officers have been dismissed from the Nigerian Police Force (NPF) for varying offenses.

Another nine officers were also demoted due to alleged misconduct.

Their dismissal and demotion was approved by the Police Service Commission (PSC) in a statement signed by the PSC head of press and public relations, Ikechukwu Ani.

According to the PSC, severe punishment was also approved for eight officers for professional misconduct while light reprimand was also approved for ten officers.

Further, Ani said that letter of warning was issued to three other police officers while three officers were, however, exonerated.

“At the meeting, the Commission treated 43 cases of Police misconduct where it dismissed one Assistant Commissioner of Police (ACP), two Superintendents of Police (SP), three Deputy Superintendents of Police (DSP) one of which is a retired officer, and four Assistant Superintendents of Police (ASP).

“It further directed the prosecution of six of the Officers to wit, one ACP, one SP, two DSPs, and two ASPs.

“The dismissed ACP, Magaji Ado Doko, was found to have engaged in acts unbecoming of a public Officer; disobedience to lawful order; discreditable conduct; unlawful use of authority and scandalous conduct.

“One of the dismissed SPs, Ogedengbe Abraham was found guilty of negligence/loss of government property; disobedience to lawful order and act unbecoming of a public officer while the other dismissed SP, Mallam Gajere Taluwai was found guilty of discreditable conduct and act unbecoming of a public officer.
