The Nigeria Police Force (NPF) has dismissed yet another officer who was caught in a video beating a man with a machete in Ekori community, Cross River State.
The officer who is identified as Mr Liyomo Okoi, a Police Constable with NPF Number 524503 was dismissed after facing an Orderly Room Trial in which he was said to have been found guilty of the offence. His dismissal takes effect from the 8th of August, 2022.
Speaking to the press at the Force Headquarters in Abuja, the Force Public Relations Officer, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said Okoi’s conduct falls short of the professional standard set by the Inspector General of Police, Mr Usman Alkali Baba.
He said the Police, under IGP Baba, frowns at any act of misconduct, especially one that involved an officer maltreating innocent citizens.
