Police dismiss corporal who rejected transfer

The Nigeria Police has dismissed Corporal Buba Adamu for refusing to report to his new station in Kaduna, where he was transferred from Cross River Command nine years ago.

The corporal was said to have promoted himself to the rank of superintendent and operated illegal activities in the Cross River Command.

The spokesperson of the command, SP Irene Ugbo, made this disclosure at a press briefing in Calabar on Thursday.

She said that Adamu had operated as a “mobile police officer” without any supervision or reporting to a specific police command since 2015 when the transfer was made.

The dismissed corporal was alleged to have been receiving his salary despite not reporting to his new station.

Adamu was exposed by some concerned members of the Nasarawa community, a Hausa-Fulani settlement in Calabar municipality that had reportedly suffered from his illegal activities.

The community raised the alarm when they learnt that the police command was under pressure to release Adamu following his arrest.

Ugbo said: “As of today, Corporal Adamu is no longer a policeman because he has been relieved of his duties.

“Every item of property belonging to the Nigeria Police in his possession, including uniforms, identification card and others, has been retrieved.

“The matter has now been charged in court. It is left to the judiciary. The court will take it up from where we stopped, as we have done the needful.”
