IGP Orders Probe Of Unmarried Policewoman Dismissed For Getting Pregnant

IGP Orders Probe Of Unmarried Policewoman Dismissed For Getting Pregnant (Updated: 1 year ago)


Reacting to the news on Wednesday, January 27, the police boss said an investigation into the dismissal of the officer will be conducted.

The Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Adamu, has called for a probe into the report of Olajide Omolola, an unmarried officer, who was sacked from service for getting pregnant.

Omolola who passed out of the Police Training School on April 24 2020, was sacked because she got pregnant out of wedlock and a letter with reference number CJ:4161/EKS/IY/Vol.2/236, DTO:181330/01/2021, was sent to an OC in Ekiti state for her to be made to return all police properties.

The letter also asked that her salary should be stopped immediately. Her dismissal was hinged on a section of the Police Act that bars unmarried policewomen from getting pregnant while in service. The section has since been repealed in the amended Police Act that was signed into law by President Buhari in September 2020.

Reacting to the news on Wednesday, January 27, the police boss said an investigation into the dismissal will be conducted. Adamu disclosed this while commissioning a project at the SPOs quarters on Oba Aladejobi Street, in the GRA area of Ikeja, Lagos State.

When told that a policewoman had been dismissed on the claim that she got pregnant out of wedlock, he said,

“Let us do our own investigation and find out because whatever I say must be authoritative.”
