The police command has dismissed three police officers attached to the Ogun state police command for extorting the sum of One hundred and fifty-three thousand Naira from one Sheriff Adedigba.

A statement from the police command's spokesperson, DSP Abimbola Oyeyemi, says the three policemen namely Inspector Sunday John, Sgt Jimoh Asimiya, and Sgt Solomon Adedapo, were alleged to have forcefully extorted the said amount from the victim while he was traveling from Abeokuta to Lagos.

Oyeyemi said having heard about the incident on social media, the state's commissioner of police, Edward Awolowo Ajogun, ordered the immediate arrest and detention of the officers involved in the dastardly act.

The three policemen were quickly identified and apprehended. He said the money was recovered from them and returned to the victim.

''They were subsequently arranged for departmental orderly room trial on a three-count charge of Corrupt practices, Discreditable conduct, and Disobedience to a lawful order.  They were found guilty of all the charges and subsequently dismissed from the force to serve as a deterrent to others in their shoes.''the statement read

Oyeyemi added that the victim, who was also present to give evidence, was full of praise for the commissioner of police and the management team, for their prompt response to the incident, which he said rekindled his hope in the Nigeria police force.
