The Ekiti State Police Command has defended its decision to fire Olajide Omolola, a policewoman, for getting pregnant when she was unmarried.

The corporal serving at the state’s Iye Divisional Police Headquarters in Ilejemeje LGA was discharged from the force last week for violating section 127 of the Police Act and Regulation banning the pregnancy of a female police officer when not married.

Speaking to Vanguard, he said; “It is very much there in the police Act and anyone that is coming in especially a woman when she could get pregnant after some years but in her own case she joined less than a year ago and she got pregnant without a husband. It is against the Police Act.”

“People bringing emotions and personal opinion to it should not be the case. In your own establishment, you have your own rules and regulations and no matter how small or big the rule is, nobody should go against it or take it for granted.

I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue fixed soon. Cheers

  2. Hey there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
