Viral Street Fight Video Old, Officers Dismissed Says FPRO

The Nigeria Police have provided clarifications regarding an old video that has been making the rounds on social media that shows two police officers fighting in the street.

According to a press release on Friday, 17th May 2024 signed by the Force Public Relations Officer, ACP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said that the two officers involved were identified as F/NO. 491112 Cpl Ozimaede Aidonojie and F/NO. 516384 PC Salubi Stephen, both of whom served at the Ebele Divisional Police Headquarters in Edo State.

“Upon thorough examination of the video in question, it has been confirmed that this regrettable incident occurred in the year 2020. The behaviour displayed by the officers during this altercation, witnessed by members of the public who had to intervene to separate them, is completely unacceptable and unbecoming of officers entrusted with upholding law and order, Adejobi said.

He further said, “In response to this serious breach of professional ethics, both Cpl Ozimaede Aidonojie and PC Salubi Stephen have been dismissed from the Force. Their dismissal was officially communicated through a Police wireless signal with reference number CH 6450/EDS/PROV/VOL.3/188, dated April 24, 2020.

“The Nigeria Police Force wishes to reiterate its condemnation of such act in the strongest terms while assuring resolute commitment to maintaining the highest standards of professionalism and integrity among its personnel.

“Members of the public are encouraged to continue to partner with the Force, as partnership is key to promoting accountability and transparency in the Force, as well as enhancing a safe and secure environment for all.
