Police Authorities Dismiss Officers Caught Firing Gunshots To Hype Kano Musician

Police authorities have dismissed three Officers attached to Special Protection Unit (SPU) Base 1, Kano, for discreditable conduct to wit misuse of firearms, abuse of power, gross indiscipline, and wastage of live ammunition. 

Their dismissal followed an investigation into a widely circulated video recording  on Friday 7th April, 2023, that showed the personnel shooting their rifle as they hailed a Kano based musician.

The Policemen,  identified as Inspector Dahiru Shuaibu, Sergeant Abdullahi Badamasi, and Sergeant Isah Danladi, were dismissed from the Nigeria Police Force on Thursday.

According to the Force Spokesperson, CSP Olumuyiwa Adejobi, they were attached to a musician in Kano on escort duties.

“In the course of their duty on Friday 7th April, 2023 at Kahutu Village, Katsina State, the officers repeatedly fired shots from their official firearms into the air despite police policy against firing in the air, standard operating procedure and relevant Force Orders; and disregarding the possible risk to the crowd at the location which included children. The act was not only criminal and unprofessional but also embarrassing to the Force and the nation at large,” he stated.

Therefore, the Force warns all Officers to ensure they carry out their duties in line with the extant laws to avoid running foul of its provisions and attracting attendant sanctions. 

The FPRO also noted that supervising Officers have been tasked to ensure continuous and detailed lectures of their men to ensure they are well acquainted with all necessary standard operating procedures.
