Justice: Ekiti Police Officer Who Killed Driver Over N50 Bribe Receives Punishment

A police officer who shot a commercial driver dead over a mere 50 naira bribe in Ekiti state, has been adequately punished.
It has been revealed that the Ekiti State Police Command has dismissed a Mobile Police corporal, Ayodele Famodimu, who shot dead a commercial driver, Olabode Ojo, at a checkpoint in Oye-Ekiti on Tuesday evening.

According to The Nation, Famodimu was dismissed after undergoing an orderly room trial.

He also appeared in court on Thursday and was remanded in prison custody.

The dismissed corporal shot Ojo dead for refusing his demand for N50 gratification at the checkpoint.

The command’s spokesman, Alberto Adeyemi, who confirmed Famodimu’s dismissal, said policemen are not trained to kill civilian but to defend lives and property.

Adeyemi said: “He (Famodimu) has already been dismissed and as I am talking to you now, he is an ex-policeman. The case is now in court and we have handed everything over to court to decide his fate.

“We did not train him to go and kill law-abiding citizens. We trained him to safeguard lives and property. Any of his ilk that goes against the law will face the music.”

Famodimu was arraigned before an Ado-Ekiti Chief Magistrate’s Court.

He was brought in leg chains and looked sober throughout the court’s proceedings.

The accused wife, who carried a two-month-old baby, was also in court.

Police prosecutor, Inspector Johnson Okunade, brought a remand order to the court.

He said there was cause to order the remand of the accused in prison for a reasonable length of time.
