Police Dismiss Two Officers Over Robbery, Illegal Duty

Two police inspectors have been arrested and dismissed for armed robbery, illegal duty, and corruption by the leadership of the Zone 2 Police in Lagos State.

The dismissed officers were identified as Inspector Sunday Adetoye and Inspector Stephen Ogunleye attached to the Zone 2 Command Headquarters, Onikan, Lagos.

The police at the zone are also on the trail of Assistant Superintendent of Police (ASP) Ajayi Victor, who was also allegedly part of the criminal activities.

The dismissal was ordered by the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, in charge of Zone 2, AIG Mohammed Ali, at the end of an Orderly Room trial.

NIGERIACRIME gathered that the policemen, alongside two members of a vigilante group identified as Semiu Afisu and Abidoye Femi, and a driver identified as Charles John, reportedly stormed a residence in Obada- Oko community in Ogun State, at about 10:00 pm, on November 23, 2023.

A statement by the zonal spokesman, Umma Ayuba, said they were armed with two Submachine SMG rifles and live ammunition.

According to reports, they searched the apartment belonging to one Taiwo Monsuru and Akintola Sunday, without a warrant and made away with five iPhones, one Samsung smartphone, one Tecno smartphone and two laptop computers.

“The AIG has directed that the dismissed officers be charged to court alongside the civilians involved, while he urges all officers and men of the force to remain professional in the discharge of their duties by the law, as anyone found wanting will be accountable for his or her action or inaction.

“He stressed that the current management of the Nigeria Police Force, under the leadership of IGP Kayode Egbetokun, would not tolerate any form of unprofessional and corrupt practice, while he implores members of the public to always report unprofessional conduct of officers and men, as the Police is always there for the protection of all,” the statement said.
