The Jigawa state police command has dismissed an officer for stealing a TV set and a pair of shoes.

According to reports, the dismissed officer is the son of a retired police officer who was identified as Abdullahi Yusuf.

Jigawa State Police commissioner, Bala Senchi while confirming the incident said;

“A policeman is expected to be of good characters and morals, that’s why he’s entrusted to protect the lives and properties of the people. The command would not spare any officer found tarnishing the good image of the organization, the police commissioner warned,” Mr Senchi said.

Yusuf is said to have stolen a TV set from a junior officer, just 2 weeks after he regained freedom after spending four months at the criminal investigation department as punishment for an item he stole earlier.
