POLICE DISMISS DEKITS MOPOL INSPECTOR OVER EXTORTION.
The Nigeria Police Force has dismissed one Mr. Richard Gele, the Police Inspector caught in a viral video dignifying and justifying extortion of members of the public and official corruption which trended from the 25th of July, 2022. The Inspector, with AP/No. 188547, who until his dismissal, was attached to Police Mobile Force 77 Squadron, Okene, Kogi State and deployed to the Itobe – Anyigba Road, for safety of road users and commuters, along the route, where the incident occurred.
The dismissed Inspector who hails from Benue State was enlisted into the Force in September 2000. His dismissal came after subjection to an internal disciplinary mechanism and being found wanting of the charges levelled against him in line with extant laws governing the conduct of police personnel.
The officer has been de-kitted and handed over to the Commissioner of Police, Kogi State, for further necessary action.
