A statement on Sunday by the Force Public Relations Officer, Force Headquarters, Abuja, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said the decision to demote the erring policeman followed the outcome of his Orderly Room Trial and a review of the recommended punishment for the offences of Discreditable Conduct, Promoting Secret Cults and violation of the Social Media Policy (SMP) of the Nigeria Police Force.

The statement added that the Force is currently looking into many other disciplinary cases of unprofessionalism and misconduct by officers in encounters with members of the public.

It however further stated, “Meanwhile, orderly room trials are ongoing and decisions reached at the end of such trials will be made known as the current police administration is committed to a transparent, accountable and proactive policing system in Nigeria.

“The Inspector-General of Police, IGP Usman Alkali Baba, psc(+), NPM, fdc, therefore charges all police officers to uphold professional ethics, discipline and the ideals of the Nigeria Police Force. He further charges them to be committed to self-discipline in line with the IGP’s policing agenda of ethical regeneration, restoration of professional standards, enhancement of anti-corruption drive with a view to having the desired Police institution Nigerians deserve.”
