3 Police Officers dismissed over unlawful shooting

Court apologises to man after spending 11 years in jail

Nigeria Police Force (NPF), has dismissed three policemen for the offences of discreditable conduct and misuse of firearms, abuse of power, gross indiscipline and wastage of live ammunition.

The trio, Inspector. Dahiru Shuaibu, Sgt. Abdullahi Badamasi, and Sgt. Isah Danladi were attached to a musician in Kano on escort duties and 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 policy 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.

The Force spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi said the act was not only criminal and unprofessional but also embarrassing to the Force and the nation at large.

He said the action was taken following complaints and findings on video evidence widely circulated on Friday 7th April, 2023, on social media of high-handedness, unprofessional conduct and misuse of firearms against the policemen from Special Protection Unit (SPU) Base 1, Kano, and a follow-up orderly room trial of the affected policemen by the Force Provost Marshal.

The NPF also warned 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.

The police tasked supervising officers to ensure continuous and detailed lectures of their men to ensure they are well acquainted with all necessary standard operating procedures.

Finally, Court delivers ruling on Tuesday
