Actress Shan George has bashed the Nigeria Police Force's decision to dismiss anyone found guilty of misconduct outrightly.
On August 3, 2022, a police officer, Corporal Opeyemi Kadiri with Force No. 509745, attached to Dolphin Divisional Headquarters, Lagos Police Command, was dismissed for gross misconduct, disobedience to lawful order, and assault on a member of the public, as captured in a viral video.
Kadiri, who joined the Force on December 6, 2016, was caught on camera searching for a commuter's phone by the roadside, in violation of the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Baba's orders.
The officer who was fired also assaulted the commuter who tried to bring the order to his attention.
Announcing his dismissal in a statement by Force spokesperson, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, the police stated that his dismissal took effect from August 12, 2022.
However, in response, Shan George frowned, claiming that dismissal for ordinary misconduct is excessive punishment.
