THE Executive Director, United Global Resolve for Peace, Mr. Olaseni Shalom, has called for the sacking of any police officer who refused to return to his duty post.
He described the refusal of policemen to obey the order of the Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, as an affront to the police leadership.
The activist also said the action of the men called to question the capacity of the IG to lead the force.
Shalom said, “ Police officers are public servants recruited for a specific purpose which is the safeguarding of civilian lives and properties.
“ A refusal to carry out their jobs is not just an affront on the Inspector – General of Police but is defiance against constitutional and other statutory laws.
“ Their refusal to do their jobs, therefore, calls for severe sanctions with outright dismissal as an option. Resentment of public scrutiny is not a validation for their actions and no excuse at law or any other standard suffices in their favor. ”
