In a message sent to the departmental directors of the National Police on November 29, the Director General of the Beninian Police dismissed many police station managers and other heads of units.
This action of the Comptroller General Idrissou Moukaïla is a logical continuation of the directives of the Council of Ministers of November 15 last.
Gendarmes and police officers pinned in cases of malpractice were simply removed from their duties and waiting to go before the Disciplinary Council where they risk delisting.
They are accused of acts of bad management at the head of their units. According to the report of the Council of Ministers of 15 November, it was noted a squandering of more than 60 million CFA, at the level of fifty police units and gendarmerie inspected.
Sacked officers were summoned to serve by November 30, 2017.
The sanctioned officials include the Central Commissioner of Cotonou and his deputy, the Chief Judicial Police, and other unit leaders.
