Written by NobleAdmin on September 6, 2018
The police authorities have dismissed the three policemen in connection with the raid on Cheif Edwin Clark’s Asokoro, Abuja residence on Tuesday.
The Force spokesman of the Nigerian Police Force, Jimoh Moshood who made this know in a statement, explained that the Inspector-General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, has approved the dismissal of Godwin Musa, Sada Abubakar and Yabo Paul from the service “for the unauthorised, illegal and unprofessional misconduct in the search of the residence of Chief Edwin Clark in Asokoro, Abuja.”
He added that ASP David Dominic who led the operation had been queried and was being investigated for discreditable conduct, negligence of duty and act unbecoming of a police officer.
Moshood hinted that the ASP too may be dismissed.
But Chief Clark’s lawyer, Dr. Kayode Ajulo is insisting on a thorough investigation of the incident, stressing that the policemen could not have carried out the search of his client’s house without authorisation.
He warned that the policemen should not be made the scapegoat in the saga, noting that only a thorough probe would satisfy his client.
