The Nigeria Police Force has confirmed that a dismissed police operative was among the two POS robbers that were lynched and burnt beyond recognition in Enugu on Tuesday.

The Enugu Commissioner of Police, CP Ahmed Ammani dismissed reports that the POS robbers recently set on fire in Enugu were policemen serving in New Haven Police Division.

In a statement signed by the State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Daniel Ndukwe, the CP described the story as untrue and unfounded.

Contrary to the report, the command said available records only revealed that one of them, later identified as Ogbobe Benjamin, has long been dismissed from the Nigeria Police Force as a Police Constable, for acts against discipline. 

“Hence, he can never be seen or said to be a serving Policeman as claimed,” he added.

The CP condemned the mob action and extra-judicial killing of the two POS suspected robbers along Bissala Road, Independence Layout, Enugu.

He ordered the State Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Department (SCIID) to carry out a discreet investigation to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the incident and those involved.
