Adamawa State Police Command Dismissed Two Policemen

TWO policemen have been dismissed in Adamawa State.

The state police command confirmed the dismissal in a statement on Wednesday, saying that an inspector and a constable were duly tried and found guilty of varying offences.

A statement signed by Police Public Relations Officer Suleiman Nguroje said: “On August 30, 2023, Adamawa State Police Command tried Insp. Ahmed Suleiman and PC Mahmood Muhammed, formerly attached to Dumne Divisional Police Headquarters, in an orderly room trial.

“The men were tried on three-count charges of defamation of character, culpable homicide, and unlawful exercise of authority contrary to paragraphs E(I)(iii) and Q(I)(iii) of the First Schedule of Police Act and Regulations, Section 370, 2020, as amended.

“The Command found them guilty as charged and recommended the punishment of dismissal for both defaulters. They are to be charged in court alongside other co-suspects.”

Nguroje explained that the constable has been de-kitted, while the inspector will be de-kitted after fulfilling some administrative procedures.

“Commissioner of Police Afolabi Babatola warned officers and men of the command to be punctual and shun all offences against discipline,” Nguroje added.
