Two police officers, Sgt. Okoi Otu and Sgt. Vincent Ayabie attached to the Cross River State Police Command have been arrested for allegedly stealing tiles from the newly built Canadian University in Obudu in the state.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Irene Ugbo, on Wednesday confirmed the incident and stated that they are facing disciplinary actions as their orderly room trials were held today (Wednesday).
The stolen tiles were on Tuesday recovered from the homes of the two policemen making them prime suspects in the matter, the Vanguard reports.
She said, “They are already in custody and they are facing disciplinary actions as we speak for what they did, there are no sacred cows, so they will bear the consequences of their actions.
A security source who pleaded anonymity further told Vanguard that it would be a miracle if the duo ever get off the hook, as the current Commissioner of Police, CP Aminu is a “no-nonsense man” who will not fail to discipline them appropriately “and you know what that means, it might lead to their dismissal,” the source said.
