The Nigeria Police has dismissed two Inspectors for alleged unprofessional conduct.
The dismissed Inspectors, Tahir Ali, and Saidu Nadabo are both attached to the 53 Force Mobile Unit, Borno.
This was disclosed by Mr Abdu Umar, the Commissioner of Police (CP) in Borno, on Thursday March 10, to NAN in Maiduguri.
Umar stated that Ali was dismissed for the murder of an Army Warrant Officer, Donatus Vokong, attached to Operation Hadin Kai, while Nadabo was dismissed for trafficking 4.5kg cannabis sativa.
According to the CP, Ali under the influence of alcohol, shot and killed the warrant officer with his rifle on February 2.
The suspect and deceased were both attached to a unit at the palace of a traditional ruler in Maiduguri.
The Assistant Inspector-General of Police (AIG) in charge of Zone 12, Mr Audu Madaki, approved their dismissal after they faced an orderly room trial.
