They have paid dearly for having the guts to steal from a former president.

Seargents Musa Musa, John Nanpak, Ogah Audu and Gabriel Ugah had stolen six television sets, fridges, air-conditioners, Ijaw attires and designer suits from ex-President Goodluck Jonathan’s former residence in Gwarimpa which they sold to traders at the Pankera second-hand market also in Gwarimpa, Abuja.

The errant officers were dismissed after they were found culpable in an orderly room trial.

The police said it is on the trail of one Mallam Shuaibu, who bought the items.
