DISMISSAL: Police Dismiss Two Traffic Police Women Filmed ReceivingN100 Bribe In Lagos

Two traffic police women, Corporals Elizabeth Itolor and Jennifer Azingbe, who were videotaped
 receiving N100 bribe from a bus driver in Lagos, have been dismissed from the Nigeria 
Police Force.

Itolor and Azingbe, attached to the Makinde Police Division, were said to have received 
their dismissal letters on Wednesday [Sept. 11]. The Police Provost Unit of the Lagos State 
Command concluded an orderly room trial of the policewomen last week.

Both women were said to have spent nine years in the police as they were recruited in 2004.

A source, who requested anonymity, told PUNCH that Itolor and Azingbe got their letters at their duty 

The source said:

They reported for work this morning and they were given dismissal letters. 
They have been crying ever since and appealing to everyone they know to help them 
salvage the situation.

The corporals’ dismissal is contained in a circular which stated that the policewomen were 
dismissed over “despicable acts and corrupt practices contrary to Paragraph E(iii) 
and C(iii) respectively of Schedule
 1 of the Police Act and Regulations 370 of the Federation of Nigeria 1990.”
A video footage on Youtube posted by one Afro Finlandia a few weeks ago, showed 
 one of the policewomen negotiating at the Oshodi/Apapa Expressway.

The video, which had over 40,000 views, and generated public outrage on social media, 
led to the arrest of the women.
