SHAME! Dismissed Cop Among ‘Roasted’ PoS Robbery Suspects

Ola ‘Kiya,Reporting

A dismissed policeman was among the two PoS robbery suspects who were set ablaze in Enugu on Tuesday by an irate mob.

The Enugu Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmed Ammani, gave the clarity while dismissing reports that the PoS robbers were policemen serving in New Haven Police Division.

In a statement signed by the State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, the CP described the story as untrue and unfounded.

The command said available records only revealed that one of them, later identified as Ogbobe Benjamin, has long been dismissed from the Nigeria Police Force as a Police Constable, for indiscipline.

“Hence, he can never be seen or said to be a serving Policeman as claimed,” the CP claimed.

He, however, condemned the mob action and extra-judicial killing of the two PoS suspected robbers along Bissala Road, Independence Layout, Enugu.

He ordered the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department (SCIID) to carry out a discreet investigation to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the incident and those involved.

The CP reiterated that on no account should a people resort to self-help to mete out justice on suspected criminals without a recourse to the rule of law.
