A Windhoek policeman appeared at the Katutura Magistrate Court last week after being charged with corruptly using his position in the Namibian Police (Nampol) for gratification.
Iipinge Jobo, 31, was arrested on 2nd of this month after accepting N$1 500 cash from a certain Abed Veko Jambanje in exchange for confiscation of evidence.
The Wanaheda Police Station is in possession of a gun that had been booked in as an exhibit in Jambanje’s case.
Following his agreement with Jambanje, Jobo was supposed to release the fire arm to him but he got arrested before doing so.
When he appeared in court last week, his bail was set at N$1 000 and he is now out of custody awaiting legal aid and the police to finalise their investigations. His case will reappear in court on 18th January next year.
