Police Dismiss 3 Officers for indiscipline

The Nigeria police authority has dismissed three officers for professional misconduct.

This is sequel to the complaints and findings on video evidence that went viral on Friday 7th April, 2023, on social media of high-handedness, unprofessional conduct, and misuse of firearms by police officers from Special Protection Unit (SPU) Base 1, Kano.

A follow-up orderly room trial of the affected policemen by the Force Provost Marshal revealed that the three officers from SPU Base 1 Kano have been dismissed for the offences of discreditable conduct to wit misuse of firearms, abuse of power, gross indiscipline, and wastage of live ammunition.

The affected police officers: Inspr. Dahiru Shuaibu, Sgt. Abdullahi Badamasi, and Sgt. Isah Danladi were attached to a musician in Kano on escort duties. In the course of their duty on Friday 7th April, 2023 at Kahutu Village, Katsina State.

“The officers repeatedly fired shots from their official firearms into the air despite police warning against firing in the air, standard operating procedure and relevant Force Orders; and disregarding the possible risk to the crowd at the location which included children.

According to police authority, the act was not only criminal and unprofessional but also embarrassing to the force and the nation at large.

The Nigeria Police Force, had warmed all officers to ensure they carry out their duties in line with the extant laws to avoid running foul of its provisions and attracting attendant sanctions.

Also, Supervising officers have also been tasked to ensure continuous and detailed lectures of their men to ensure they are well acquainted with all necessary standard operating procedures.
