Three Policemen Get 2 Years In Jail For Jumping At ‘Free Food’

Lol awoof dey purge belle.  Three policemen were, yesterday, sentenced to
two years imprisonment by Magistrate A. Demi-Ajayi of an Ebute-Metta
Magistrate’s Court, sitting at Oyingbo, Lagos, over negligence, which resulted
in the stealing of their AK-47.
The convicts are Sergeant Felix Okwa, 47; Corporal Ogu
Romanus, 46, and Constable Sunday Okoh, 34. Apart from being jailed for two years, they will also serve
a six-month community service after completing their jail term.

The three cops who were attached to Ishashi Police Division
of Lagos State Police Command, were said to be on patrol on December 12 at
11.30p.m., when they received a call from an unknown guest, named Kezzy, who
invited them for supper at Regional Hotel, also in Ishashi, claiming he wanted
to reward them for a job they did for him.
The unknown guest was said to have fed them with food laced
with drugs, after which they slept off and their weapons, three AK-47 rifles
and 90 live ammunition were stolen.
The hotel manager reported the matter at the Ishashi Police
Station after which the unconscious policemen were arrested and later charged
to court.
The cops were first arraigned on January 19, 2011, on a two
count charge bordering on conspiracy and stealing.
