 The Ekiti State Police Command has justified the dismissal of an unmarried female corporal, Miss Olajide Omolola, for getting pregnant.

Commissioner of Police, Mr. Babatunde Mobayo, who said this while addressing newsmen in Ado-Ekiti, the state on Thursday, noted that the police acted in the best interest of the Force.

Omolola, who was attached to the Iye Ekiti Police Station in Ilejemeje area of Ekiti State, was dismissed last week by police authorities for getting pregnant barely a year after graduating from the police academy.

Mobayo said that the female corporal
flagrantly violated section 127 of the police Act by getting pregnant without marriage, which he said carries punitive measures against any defaulters of the rules of engagement.

He explained the rule and regulation was unambiguous that a woman police must undergo post training experience on the field for at least two years before marriage and three years before childbearing.
