Few hours after the Police Service Commission (PSC) announced its readiness to dismiss 37 former SARS operatives, the names and service numbers of the officers affected have been released.
The names of the 37 officers were penciled down for dismissal following youths protests against the activities of the recently-disbanded Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) unit of the Nigeria Police Force.
The youths have also been calling on the Federal Government to reform the Police.
But in a series of tweets on Saturday, Ayo Akanji, a member of President Muhammadu Buhari’s media team released the names and service numbers of the dismissed officers on Twitter.
Popular police officers, Abayomi Shogunle and Dolapo Badmus were listed among the dismissed officers.
He, however, later clarified that Badmus and Shogunle were reprimanded and demoted.
Shogunle is a former Head Of Police Complaints Response Unit while Badmus is a former Police Public Relations Officer in Lagos State.
Akanji stated that the police administrative action includes dismissal, reprimand and demotion.
Recall that the PSC had on Friday said 37 ex-SARS officers would be dismissed while 24 would be prosecuted for various acts of professional misconducts.
