The four officers have been found guilty of stealing from ex-President Goodluck Jonathan after a police inquiry.

Four police officers have been dismissed from Nigerian Police Force by the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Police Command after stealing from an Abuja home of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

On Thursday, August 3, 2017, the four officers, Sgts. Musa Musa, John Nanpak, Ogah Audu and Gabriel Ugah, were dismissed from the command after they were found guilty of gross misconduct.

After stealing what was reported as six television sets, fridges, air-conditioners, Ijaw attires and designer suits from the former President's property, they sold off the loot to traders at the Pankera second-hand market in Gwarimpa, Abuja.

FCT police spokesman, Anjuguri Manzah, confirmed the dismissal in a statement, saying that the culprits were found guilty in an orderly room proceeding.

His statement read, "In fulfilment of the promise by the FCT Police Command to make public its findings on the investigation of the case of theft at the Gwarimpa residence of former president, Dr Goodluck  Jonathan, the command wishes to state that in line with first schedule of Police Act and regulation 370 Cap 19, the policemen guarding the house have been tried in an orderly room proceeding and found culpable of the offence.

"Sequel to the outcome of the orderly room proceeding, the FCT Commissioner of Police, Musa Kimo has approved the immediate dismissal of the policemen from the Nigeria Police Force."

Manzah also said the group's ring leader, Sgt Musa, will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law so as to serve as a deterrent to other police officers trying to tarnish the image of the force.
