Police reinstate officers accused of killing Boko Haram leader Moh’d Yusuf
Four police officers accused of the extrajudicial killing of late Boko Haram leader Mohammed Yusuf have been reinstated by the Police Service Commission.
Assistant commissioners of police, John Abang and M. A. Akeera, Chief Superintendent of Police Mohammed Ahmadu and Assistant Superintendent of Police Madu Buba, as well as Sergeant Adamu Gado have been reinstated and promoted to their ranks.
“I can confirm that those officers have been reinstated into the police,” he said.
He said they were reinstated after the Commission received a memo from the Inspector General of Police asking for their reinstatement which was concluded in 2017.
It was learnt that once they were acquitted in court and the government did not appeal the judgment, they were free to return to their duties.
