The dismissed Inspector, who hails from Benue State, was enlisted into the Nigeria Police Force in September, 2000.

The officer has been de-kitted and handed over to the Commissioner of Police, Kogi State, for further necessary action.

His dismissal came after subjection to internal disciplinary mechanisms and being found wanting of the charges levelled against him in line with extant laws governing the conduct of police personnel.

His dismissal and de-kitting, however, implies that he, henceforth, ceases to be a member of the Nigeria Police Force.
