Two Police Inspectors, Sunday Adetoye and Ogunleye Stephen, attached to the Zone 2 Command Headquarters, Onikan, Lagos, have been dismissed for allegedly engaging in armed robbery, official corruption and illegal duty.

The dismissal was ordered by the Assistant Inspector-General of Police, in-charge of Zone 2, AIG Mohammed Ali, at the end of an Orderly Room trail.

Adetoye and Stephen, alongside two members of a vigilante group identified as Semiu Afisu and Abidoye Femi, and a driver identified as Charles John, reportedly stormed a residence in Obada- Oko community in Ogun State, at about 10:00 pm, on November 23, 2023.

A statement by the zonal spokesman, Umma Ayuba, said they were armed with two Submachine SMG rifles and live ammunition.

According to reports, they searched the apartment belonging to one Taiwo Monsuru and Akintola Sunday, without a warrant and made away with five iPhones, one Samsung smartphone, one Tecno smartphone and two laptop computers.

“The AIG has directed that the dismissed officers be charged to court alongside the civilians involved, while he urges all officers and men of the force to remain professional in the discharge of their duties by the law, as anyone found wanting will be accountable for his or her action or inaction.

“He stressed that the current management of the Nigeria Police Force, under the leadership of IGP Kayode Egbetokun, would not tolerate any form of unprofessional and corrupt practice, while he implores members of the public to always report unprofessional conduct of officers and men, as the Police is always there for the protection of all,” the statement said.
