The state Police Command has dismissed a police sergeant, Daniel Osaimayu from the Nigeria Police Force for allegedly collecting N50, 000 bribe from motorists in the Oshodi area of Lagos State.
Osaimayu, who was attached to the Lagos State Task Force on Environmental and Special Offences (Enforcement) Unit, Alausa, was arrested on Monday by the X-Squad of the Lagos State Police Command.
The X-Squad operatives had arrested a hoodlum in the area and found the cash on him. The hoodlum, however, fingered the police sergeant, who was posted to the area, as his accomplice.
The state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, confirmed the dismissal on Wednesday.
