The Police Service Commission has said it will dismiss from service, any police officer found culpable in the abduction of Ese Oruru who was forced into marriage in Kano after her conversion to Islam.
The commission said it was waiting for the report of the on-going investigation of some police officers involved in the case, as directed by the Inspector- General of Police, Solomon Arase.
A statement by the PSC spokesman, Ikechukwu Ani on Thursday in Abuja, said the commission “will ensure that any police officer who is found to have compromised himself either by omission or commission in the saga will be flushed out.”
It commended the IG “for his swift action in rescuing the teenager and ensuring that she was immediately reunited with her family,” adding that it would work with Arase to see that Nigerians including the likes of Ese were guaranteed their freedom to life.
“The Police Service Commission is constitutionally mandated to exercise disciplinary action against members of the police among other responsibilities and has the right to dismiss any officer found culpable in the on-going abduction saga,” the statement added.
