Police Service Commission dismisses Commissioner of Police, Zakari Biu, for his role in the escape of Boko Haram suspect, Kabiru Sokoto
https://twitter.com/MobilePunch/status/172346844855283712

The Police Service Commission on Wednesday announced the dismissal of Zakari Biu from the Nigerian police force. Biu, until Wednesday, was a commissioner of police in charge of criminal investigations in Abuja

The decision to dismiss Biu was linked to the escape of Kabiru Sokoto, the suspected christmas day Catholic church bomber from police custody. Kabiru Sokoto reportedly masterminded the bombing of St. Theresa Catholic Church, Madala, Niger State on December 25 2011 killing 42 people , he was recently captured in Taraba state.

The decision regarding Biu's dismissal was taken at the meeting of the PSC which was held in Abuja today.

A statement signed by Mr. Ferdinand U. Ekpe on behalf of the chairman of the commission, Mr. Parry Osayande, said the decision to dismiss Biu was as a result of his culpability in the escape of suspected Boko Haram terrorist Kabiru Umar.

Does FG have jurisdiction over hisbah police?   If they do Biu should be given a life ban from serving in any capacity, official or consulting, with any law enforcing outfit, local, state or federal.  I suspect this guy will end up in Hisbah and continue to terrorize people or aid the propagation of terror at the local level.

This isnt the end o!


logica:

He was suspended before. . .

He was put before a panel constituted of retired Police officers and they have found him guilty. . .  So now they have recommended he be dismissed from the police. . .

Now! He would be prosecuted in a court and sent to Kirikiri maximum if only the state can prove they have a case against him. . .
Re: Escape Of Kabiru Sokoto: Zakari Biu Dismissed From Nigeria Police Force by logica(m): 5:26pm On Feb 22, 2012
Okija_juju,

I was of the opinion he was recommended for dismissal for culpability in the Jos crisis some years ago. Somebody help me confirm that please?

I think, there is a need to create the western Niger , when you look at the security issue, that way, yo make the north majority. It is going to be hard on you people. No matter the number of officers you sack, you still have a problem in your hand.

It should be prosecuted ASAP and was he the only one that compromised They should please investigate further on whose instructions he actually released him.
Re: Escape Of Kabiru Sokoto: Zakari Biu Dismissed From Nigeria Police Force by DrKnow1(m): 5:48pm On Feb 22, 2012
He remains a wounded lion and a threat to national security. He should be incarcerated.
Re: Escape Of Kabiru Sokoto: Zakari Biu Dismissed From Nigeria Police Force by EagleNest(m): 5:55pm On Feb 22, 2012
There are many Zakari Biu in Police. They can go to any length to compromise national security for money or protection of interests of handlers/cabals/political bigwigs etc
The only deterrant would be to teach this guy serious lesson (kirikiri maximum). Dismisal from Force is not enough!

Re: Escape Of Kabiru Sokoto: Zakari Biu Dismissed From Nigeria Police Force by Kilode1: 6:16pm On Feb 22, 2012
For those who were too young when Abacha and his murderous goons ruled Nigeria:

Zakari Biu was the commander of a secret police unit called Strike Force under the control of Abacha. Strike force was accused of several human rights abuses including the callous kidnapping and murder of Mr. Bagauda Kaltho corespondent for TheNews magazine, one of the several Lagos based papers that were critics of the Abacha junta.

The Justice Oputa Led Truth commission received Several petitions detailing Zakari biu's involvement in those killings. OBJ chased him out when he became President in 1999 but they never really prosecuted him (typical Naija ostriching)

Anyway, he found his way back to the police 10 years after and was re-instated ( can you believe that? No accountability) so here we are again.

That is the reason why some of us are saying, Zakari Biu suspended again

I can bet my toe, nothing will happen to this guy and one day he will run for political office and win, probably senate.

Righteousness exhalts a nation, no be so una Bible talk?

You cannot progress with so much injustice against your own people. Bloods crying out for justice. You can't progress with that.

Has it been proved beyond every reasonable doubt that he did compromise?Otherwise,the  decision is a rash one.
Re: Escape Of Kabiru Sokoto: Zakari Biu Dismissed From Nigeria Police Force by Beaf: 6:29pm On Feb 22, 2012
Next thing is to sentence him to death and hang the fool.

Damn! You may have a point there. I never thought of it in that way at all. This guy shouldn't be walkin free at all. He's like a snake whose tail and not the head was cut. As dangerous as ever
