Inspector-General of Police, IGP Solomon Arase has so far sacked 50 police officers found guilty of sharp practices and other acts of misconduct.
Also within the same period, 56 other officers were sanctioned for various offences between May and November.
The police chief, who disclosed this during the end of the year IGP Conference at the Force Headquarters, Abuja, also revealed that 3,000 police personnel have been deployed to North-East Nigeria in the liberated areas where Boko Haram had held sway some months back.
“Between May and November, 2015, the anti-corruption enforcement architecture emplaced by the Force leadership has led to the dismissal of a total of 50 personnel for proven corrupt practices while another 56 have been awarded various punishments.
“The IGP Monitoring Unit, X-Squad and the Provost Marshal, have been charged to sustain the enforcement drive in the upcoming year while the policy of holding commissioners of police, area commanders and divisional police officers, vicariously liable for such distasteful professional misconduct will also be reinforced,” he said.
The IGP also used the occasion to inaugurate a scholarship award for 301 children of personnel who lost their lives in the line of duty and for those who have excelled in their various duty posts, even as he called on philanthropists and corporate organisations to support the foundation which he said would also cater for children of victims of police brutality.
