Imo Police Dismiss Seven Cops Over Extortion
The Imo State Commissioner of Police, Muhammed Berde, on Thursday, disclosed that his command had dismissed seven policemen for fragrant abuse of police standard practice.
The CP who spoke to journalists in his office in Owerri, the state capital, on the readiness of the command to police the state ahead of the Christmas and New Year seasons said that his command would not condole any act of insubordination from any of his men.
Corroborating the CP’s stance shortly after, the command spokesperson, Micheal Abattam, in a statement, said the affected officers had been arraigned in court and dismissed.
The command’s spokesperson said that the CP had instructed heads of various units to ensure that their subordinates behave well.
He appealed to members of the public to ensure proper conduct at all times in their encounters with police officers to avoid infractions which may be subject to prosecution and advised them to use the Command’s emergency control room numbers, in times of distress or whenever they are being harassed by any member of the Force for quick intervention: 08034773600 or 08098880197.”
