Three Nigerian policemen have been sacked for unprofessional conduct after being filmed firing in the air to salute a popular singer.

The three officers were on escort duties with singer, Dauda Adamu Kahutu, popular by his stage name Rarara, when they fired shots as he made his way into his car.

Rarara is known to have close ties with the ruling party.

Charges against the officers were misuse of firearms, wastage of live ammunition and abuse of power, police said.

Their dismissals were announced on Thursday by police spokesman Olumuyiwa Adejobi.

He said the decision was taken following complaints after footage of the incident went viral on social media.
