Two Nigerian policemen, Corporal Ozimende Aidonojie (F/NO.491112) and Constable Salubi Stephen (F/NO.516384) who were caught on camera fighting publicly on a street in Edo State have been dismissed by the Police Force.
IGP Mohammed Adamu, the Inspector-General of Police, had ordered the arrest of the two policemen after the video was shared on Twitter Thursday by the handle @parodyspokesman.
Same Thursday, a verified Twitter handle of the Nigeria Police, @PoliceNG responding to the video, said the policemen were going to face disciplinary action.
Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja, DCP Frank Mba, in his reaction read, “The Force wishes to apprise the general public that this show of shame is certainly not in our character and we will not condone such indiscipline.
“In the best tradition of transparency and accountability, the outcome of the trial will be made public. This, we believe, will also serve as a deterrent to other police officers.”
In another tweet by the Police on Friday evening tagged “Feedback on investigations into cases of unprofessional conduct by police officers” it was revealed the policemen had been dismissed.
“CPL Ozimende Aidonojie and PC Salubi Stephen captured in a viral video fighting shamelessly in Edo State, have been tried and found guilty. They have been dismissed from the Force,” the tweet read.
