Shocking: Confession Of A DPO About What Goes On In Nigerian Police Stations

For whoever wants to know why inefficiency is the lot of the Nigeria Police, the starting point may be to closely watch the state of things at police stations across the country.

Apart from the poor physical state of many of them, they are largely run on charity.Investigations shows that some of the police stations in Nigeria get as low as N35,000 as allocation from the force headquarters per quarter.

This is the reason why in all the states of the federation, many police stations rely on philanthropic gestures from members of their host communities and proceeds of bribery to function effectively. And that is why inscriptions such as ‘Donated by Welders Association’, ‘Community Development Association’ are constant features on many items and facilities found in many police stations in the country.

DPO Arrested For Almost Beating Sergeant To Death in Ikeja

The Divisional Police Officer in charge of the Manufacturing Association of Nigeria, MAN, Centre Police Station, has been summoned by Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Umar Manko for brutally beating one of his sergeants.  According to reports, the Police Officer, Jimoh Aliu wanted to displine the sergeant John Ismaila for coming late to work.

Without waiting for an explanation, Aliu allegedly pounced on Ismaila and begin to physically attack him. The DPO was said to have beaten the sergeant until he started bleeding from his ears. He then ordered that the sergeant be locked up in the cell.  The sergeant was continually assaulted until he started bleeding from his ears, then passed out in the pool of his own blood. He was then rushed to Ikeja General Hospital.

When asked about the incident, the DPO refused to apologize to the Sergeant, insisting that he was just trying to “discipline the erring sergeant” adding that the man will still “face an orderly room trial.”
