The Osun State Police Command have announced the dismissal of one of its personnel, Sergeant Adamu Garba, for killing a motorcycle rider, Saheed Olabomi.
Garba, had on July 27, 2021, fired a gunshot that killed Olabomi, who was on a bike along Oke Onitea area of Osogbo. Olabomi had been rushed to the Osun State University Teaching Hospital, Osogbo for treatment but gave up the ghost about a day after.
The Police had said it arrested Garba and made him face orderly room trial.
A statement issued by the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Yemisi Opalola on Friday, said the erring policeman was found guilty and subsequently dismissed from the Police Force.
“The general public will recall that on 27th July, 2021, the Commissioner of Police, Osun State Police Command, CP Olawale Olokode, immediately arrested and detained the Police officer that shot one Saheed Olabomi in Osogbo for disciplinary action.

“As the CP promised, in the best tradition of transparency and accountability that the outcome of the trial will be brought to the public, the Policeman, F/NO.467549 Sergeant Adamu Garba has been tried in orderly room in line with the laid down rules and regulations of the Nigeria Police Disciplinary procedure.
“The erring officer has been found guilty of the offence and subsequently dismissed from the Force. The orderly room procedure has been forwarded to Police Force Headquarters, Abuja for necessary action towards prosecution. This, he (CP) believes will serve as deterrent to other Police officers.
“The Commissioner of Police, CP Olawale Olokode, wishes to inform the general public, most especially the good people of the State that, he will never condone any act of indiscipline and unprofessional conduct exhibited by any member(s) of the Nigeria Police under his watch.
“He, therefore, appeals to the members of the public to be law abiding and be rest assured that justice will prevail,” the statement reads.
