Six police officers dismissed in Kwara for misconduct

Kwara state Commissioner of Police, Kayode Egbetokun has revealed that six police officers have been dismissed in the State over alleged acts of misconduct.

The police boss revealed this at a stakeholders meeting with leadership of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN), Tricycle Owners Association of Nigeria (TOAN), hotel owners association, Okada riders association, students’ union leaders, and human rights activists in the state.

Egbetokun who insisted that many police officers had been served various forms of punishment, added that the cases of police extortion had reduced drastically.

The Kwara state Police Commissioner further revealed that they have not witnessed cases of police extra judicial killing, brutality and harassment.

He said;

“Please, talk with your men not to copy what’s happening elsewhere in the country, particularly, as it concerned current spate of insecurity in many parts of the country. You can see that it is no longer #Endsars protest again with the level of destruction and looting going on in some places in the country. It looks like a new agenda by the criminal elements. They loot armoury to get gun in order to commit atrocities after this time. We should discourage that and be careful with kind of information we access on social media. Fake reports that can cause disunity and chaos are being circulated. We have to be careful.”
