Police Derank Inspector to Sergeant, Another Severely Reprimanded Over Assault on Citizen

.... As IGP Tasks Officers on Professionalism, Respect for Fundamental Rights

The Nigeria Police has reduced the rank of one Adejoh Siaka from Inspector to Sergeant after a follow-up orderly room trial by Force Provost Marshal in Abuja.

Force Public Relations Officer CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi in a press statement noted that this was sequel to complaints and findings on video evidence widely circulated on Sunday 9th April, 2023, on social media of assault, discreditable conduct, and incivility to members of the public, at Emouha, Rivers State.

Similarly, the Force PRO added that one Sergeant Ndiwa Kpuebari who was also present at the scene but took no steps to discourage such inappropriate and shameful act was severely reprimanded. 

"However, one Inspector Friday Obaka, who was later discovered to have been absent from the scene of the skirmish was discharged unconditionally at the conclusion of the proceedings," he stated.

In all, the three Policemen will be posted out of Rivers State to other Commands and Formations to continue their police duties.

The Inspector General of Police has therefore tasked officers and men of the Force to be diligent and uphold the lofty tenets of professional policing in the discharge of their duties with respect for the fundamental rights of all citizens in line with the provisions of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria (as amended).
