Police authorities have dismissed an officer Inspector Adabo Mohammed for criminal conspiracy, armed robbery/kidnapping, and corrupt practice.

A statement by the spokesman of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF) Muyiwa Adejobi said the officer conspired with five others to commit the crime in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT).

“One Inspector Adabo Mohammed was dismissed for the offences of criminal conspiracy, armed robbery/kidnapping, and corrupt practice. The dismissed officer, along with five others were members of an armed robbery gang responsible for the robbery of the sum of N29.8 million from a victim in Gwagwalada, FCT as well as the kidnap of one Ikechukwu Emmanuel Okafor in Tunga Manje, and the collection of ransom sum of N4.4m,” he said in a Friday statement while reaffirming the Force’s resolve to uphold professionalism and integrity. “The ex-officer has been charged to court accordingly.”

“Similarly, the trio of Inspectors Osagie Efford, Semiu Agbekin, and Francis Ahuen, attached to the Special Tactical Squad (STS), have been demoted to their previous rank of Sergeant for the extortion of some motorists in Abuja. The trio intercepted an unregistered Mercedes Benz at Gwarinpa, Abuja, and forced the occupants to part with the total sum of N29.4m.”

He said these actions reflect the Forces’ resolve to reform the police.

“These reforms aim to strengthen internal oversight mechanisms, enhance training programs focused on ethics and community policing, and improve transparency in disciplinary procedures,” he said.
