As a means of sending a note of warning to other corrupt officers, the Nigeria Police Force has dismissed two special constabularies who demanded bribe from a Dutch power bike cyclist cum tourist.

The dismissal of the erring operatives was announced by the Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Hamzat Adebola, at the police headquarters in Eleyele, Ibadan on Thursday.

Hamzat said the officers disregarded numerous orders and directives against professional misconduct, extortion, incivilities towards members of the public and corruption.

“Consequential on the above, the Command re-affirms its commitments towards fighting corruption and all cases of professional misconduct at all levels by causing a deliberate increase in the layers this yuletide season and beyond.

“Lastly, while this action is to serve as deterrence to other officers with a similar disposition, Special Constabularies Kareem Fatai and Jimoh Lukmon cease to be part of the noble policing profession from today Thursday, 21/12/2023″.

Recall that Jimoh Lukmon and Kareem Fatai were captured in a viral video begging money from the Dutch tourist.

The incident happened while they were on duty along Moniya-Iseyin Road.
