Drunk Policeman Dismissed In Lagos
In case you missed it, there has been a video of a policeman who got drunk at Akowonjo, Dopemu area of Lagos state.
Unfortunately for the man, the video got to the Inspector General of Police, IGP Ibrahim K. Idris
He immediately directed the state Commissioner of Police, CP Imohimi Edgal to fish out the erring policeman for appropriate disciplinary action.
If you saw the video, the policeman was obviously dazed after guzzling large quantity of alcoholic beverage and there was no way a responsible organization would overlook it.
He was located and apprehended on Wednesday, November 7, 2018 at Police Mobile Force Squadron 22 Base, Ikeja, where he served by the Command Provost.
He was identified as Inspector Kadima Useni with appointment number 176219.
During interrogation, the officer affirmed that he was the one in the video. He was therefore tried in orderly room and summarily dismissed to serve as a deterrent to others.
To prevent reoccurrence of this type of incident, the CP has directed the officer in charge of the Command Provost Section to embark on tour of all police formations and barracks within the state with a view to identifying and shutting all beer parlours within the police community.
In the same vein, the CP warns against offering policemen alcoholic drinks while on duty by members of the public.
He added that henceforth any policeman found drunk on duty will be visited with similar punishment.
