The Nigeria police have dismissed two special constabularies for demanding money from a Dutch power bike cyclist, according to TVC News.

Oyo State Commissioner of Police, Hamzat Adebola pronounced their dismissal at the state’s Police Headquarters in Eleyele, Ibadan.

The two special constabularies, Jimoh Lukmon and Kareem Fatai, who were on duty along Moniya-Iseyin road were seen in a viral video dated 29/10/2023 demanding money from the tourist who told them she was enroute to Abuja. At an event on Thursday, Commissioner of Police Hamzat Adebola announced the dismissal of the culprits, promptly removing them from their positions.

According to the police boss, the duo defied 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 yesterday Thursday, 21/12/2023,” the police said in a statement.
