Police Inspector dismissed for alleged robbery and kidnapping in Abuja



Police Inspector dismissed for alleged robbery in Abuja

Adabo Mohammed, a police inspector, has been dismissed from the Nigeria Police Force over his alleged involvement in robbery and kidnapping activities in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja. This announcement was made on Friday, May 17, by the Nigeria Police Force spokesperson, Muyiwa Adejobi.

Adabo Mohammed, along with five other individuals, is accused of being part of an armed robbery gang that reportedly stole N29.8 million from a victim during a robbery operation in the Gwagwalada area of Abuja.

Additionally, the dismissed officer was implicated in the kidnapping of Ikechukwu Emmanuel Okafor in the Tunga Maje area of Abuja, during which a ransom of N4.4 million was collected. Mohammed has since been charged to court.

Furthermore, Adejobi revealed that the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Kayode Egbetokun, has approved the demotion of three other police inspectors to the rank of sergeant due to allegations of extortion.

The demoted officers—Osagie Efford, Semiu Agbekin, and Francis Ahuen—were part of the special tactical squad (STS) in the FCT. These officers were found to have intercepted an unregistered Mercedes Benz in the Gwarinpa area and coerced the occupants into paying a total sum of N29.4 million.
