Two police officers attached to Zone 2 Command headquarters, Onikan, Lagos was on Thursday dismissed, for offences which the zone described as armed “robbery, official corruption and illegal duty.”

The names of the police inspectors are; Sunday Adetoye and Ogunleye Stephen.

Assistant Inspector General of Police incharge of Zone 2, AIG Mohammed Ali ordered their dismissal after an Orderly Room trail.


Inpectors Adetoye with Force number 279495 and Stephen with Force number 223521, alongside two members of a Vigilante Group identified as Semiu Afisu and Abidoye Femi, a driver identified as Charles John, reportedly stormed a residence in Obada- Oko community in Ogun State, at about 10 pm, on November 23,2023.

They were said to have been armed with two Submachine SMG rifles and live ammunition.
They reportedly 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.

Explaining how they were arrested, the Zonal Public Relations Officer, SP Umma Ayuba, said ” Police officers attached to Ifo Division mounted a roadblock after other residents of the apartment informed them of the incident, with the description of the vehicle. This led to the apprehension of the occupants of the vehicle, without ASP Ajayi Victor who led the illegal operation. He is currently at large.

“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 further emphasizes that the current management of the Nigeria Police Force, under the leadership of IGP Kayode Egbetokun, will 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”, Ayuba stated.
