Dismissed Police: Your Position Is ‘Uninformed’, Force PRO Tells Nollywood Actress, Shan George

The Nigeria Police has criticized the popular Nollywood actress Shan George’s criticism of the current wave of firing officers found guilty of wrongdoing in the Force, calling it “uninformed.”

According to the Force PRO, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi the Police is not a social club, cooperative society, or association but a regimented organization that thrives on discipline, law, and order.

“Those dismissed policemen are not fit to be in the NPF. NPF is not a social club, cooperative society, or association, it’s a regimented organization, established and guided by the CFRN (Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria) and other extant laws, Adejobi said:

He went further to say, “It takes someone who has read the law or gone through the Nigeria Police Act 2020 or the Public Service Rules, or the Administration of CJ Act, to criticize the decision of the NPF management team on disciplinary matters, even at times, most of their misdeeds are criminal

“So those who criticize the NPF should study the records of Service and history of the dismissed officers, before further reactions. After all, Newton said Actions and reactions are equal and opposite.”

Recalled that Shan George had advised the Police authorities to consider either demoting, suspending, or reducing the salaries of officers found guilty of any misconduct rather than outright dismissal.

“So | woke up this morning and am hearing about another policeman that has been dismissed for misconduct or maybe one offense or another.

“I’m thinking that not a good idea to be dismissing them. You can demote, you can suspend, you can reduce the salary. You now have to actually dismiss them and put them back into society as jobless people.

“A qualified policeman who has been doing a police job for while and now back on the street as Jobless. What do you think about it? That’s not just right please, Shan George said.
