Three policemen attached to Amukoko Division by names and service numbers: 25759 Sgt. Osaseri Saturday, 35 9075 Sgt. Segun Okun, 496833 Cpl. Adekunle Oluwarotimi have been tried and dismissed from the Nigeria Police for breeching the rules of engagement to wit reckless application of firearms.

The aforementioned Non Commissioned Officers(NCOs), committed the offence on the 11/01/2018, at about 2130 hours, at Ifelodun street, Amukoko, Lagos state when they disproportionately responded with bullets fired from their weapons at some youths alleged to have hurled some non ballistic missiles at them such as stones, sticks and bottles leading to the death of one of the youths and injury on another.

They were arrested, detained and tried immediately on the orders of the Commissioner of Police, Lagos state, CP Edgal Imohimi. The guilty verdict was passed on them by the Adjudicating officer who considered that the officers did not appreciate the situation critically and ought not to have applied the maximum force on the unruly youths.

Meanwhile the officers will be charged to court next week, while a duplicate copy of the Casefile would be sent to the Directorate of Public Prosecution( DPP) for legal advice.

Sequel to the above occurrence, the Commissioner of Police has directed all the Area Commanders and DPOs in Lagos state to warn their men against misapplication of force. He further warned that officers must abide by the Rules of Engagement ( ROE) as stipulated in Force Order 237.
SP Chike Oti Police Public Relations Officer Lagos State.

Future armed robbers.

These guys should be be made to face the full anger of the law,and the law of moses" an eye for an eye" should be applied here.

If these guys are some how released, they will go on to become armed robbers or kidnappers.

Sad

And they look so hungry

Police should re-orient itself on the applications of force

A re-training of officers on how to analyse tense situations and applicable use of force is imperative

It won't cost more than N18m but could save at least 100+ lives annually plus the careers of some ill trained officers

All policemen are same.

A thief is not a person that steals but the person caught stealing red-handed.

Hmmm there salary is less than 50000 and they still lost it...

They're more dangerous now because they will be more frustrated...


They would have punish them rather than sack... an hungry man is an angry man

Good one. Meanwhile, to provide a long lasting solution. The Nigeria Police must raise the standards for which one can be recruited into the force. I.e. a graduate, etc

You spoke my mind...
They should have just made sure that they receive just 20% of their salaries then the rest 80% used to compensate the victims on monthly basis...
