A statement by DCP Don Awunah, Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja listed the offences as Aiding and abetting serious crimes, Conspiracy with militants and Disappearance of explosives.

Awunah said that the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Idris, on assumption of duty, instituted strict measures to ensure that the conduct of officers conformed to international best practices and norms.

He said that the IGP was determined to ensure that Police duties and other responsibilities were carried out professionally without compromising integrity and allegiance to the nation and the force.

The force image maker listed the affected policemen as ex ASP Yuguda Abbah, ex Sgt. Habila Sarki, ex Diphen Nimmyel, ex Sgt. Yasan Danda, ex Sgt. Abbas Mailalle and ex Sgt. Bwanason Tanko.

Others are ex Sgt. Donan James, ex Cpl. Idris Salisu, ex Cpl. Zakari Kofi, ex Sgt. Musbahu Yahaya, ex Sgt. Ugenlo Sylveste, ex Sgt. Musa Umar,  ex Cpl Omale Edicha and ex Sgt. Laibi Opakegba .

He said the aforementioned personnel of the force who used their official capacities to carry out misconduct were dealt with according to the law to serve as deterrent to others.

“The following personnel of the Force who erred and compromised in discharging their duties and betraying the official oath of office were arrested, subjected to internal disciplinary measures and punished according to the gravity of their offences.

“This unacceptable professional misconduct are categorised as follows: Aiding and abetting serious crimes, Conspiracy with militants and Disappearance of explosives.

“The IGP wishes to acknowledge and commend the patriotic and tireless police officers who are making sure that Nigeria is safe and secure especially at the flash points of the North East, North Central and South- South (Niger Delta).

“Their sacrifices will not go in vain; they will be adequately rewarded.

“Admittedly, these remarkable achievements are clear testimonies of interagency synergy between the police and our sister intelligence agencies,’’ he stated.

He said that the IGP recognised and appreciated the professional and institutional support of sister agencies.

According to Awunah, the process to progressively sanitise the system of unprofessional and criminally minded personnel will be sustained.

When ever they send police 2 go and do work 4 road who is given them the fuel? Who is given them food 4 that bush? Some of them will stay 4 gud 1 week without taking bath. Some useless they compare nigerian police with British and USA police, if u are not in the system u will not no what is happening,

  55. Is this a joke or what…if you really mean to sanitize this force,all the police will get sacked on a single day….cos they all stink.

  56. God bless u Mr Isaac. During recruitment excersic, if u go various state u will see them full everywhere with their small head, big head, tall, short with difference size like fly. Anybody that hate police is a Satan. God said that he will come this earth because of siners. So, think twice my brothers and sisters.

  57. Is high time IG set a special squad to monitor the activities of the Nigeria police force because they are now acting beyond their capacity. Hw can a police officer stand on the high way and be collecting the little money bus drivers do collect from their passengers. Bribery is the worm that has eating deep into the police force today

  58. Hmmm 14 policemen dismissed becos of misconduct,why?the best name 4 policemen is Misconduct now,pls no need of dismissing only 14 of them,say dismissed all of them,becos all policemen are corrupted.if dis country wants to tackle corruption they have to tackled where corruption is embedded is in POLICE.

  60. Yes is a welcome development for the issues their criminal activities & so on

  61. Obaka it seems u are a police man. If u hve eva bn frustrated by dis highway police b/c of 50 naira u will hate dem
