Police Sergeant Who Said the Boys Must Be Killed Has Been Caught

From all indications there is a genuine commitment on the part of the police authority to do justice in the case of the gruesome murder of four University of Port-Harcourt students by the people of Aluu community.

Nigerian Police Force has identified, caught and dismissed a Sergeant known as Lucky Orji, who was involved in the gruesome murder of the students, following the confessions of one of the arrested suspects who claimed that a police man was part of the mob.

The sergeant was dismissed for ordering the mob to kill the innocent students.

Mr. Frank Mba, the force Public Relations officer, named the dismissed Sergeant as Lucky Orji. He stated that the Nigerian Police Force has carried out their investigations and dismissed him accordingly.

According to Mr Mba, the Sergeant is among the 13 persons to be charged to court on Wednesday.

The dismissed police officer and another officer were alleged to have stumbled upon the angry mob beating the students, Mba said. “The officers were not even sent to the scene, he went on his own, outside the code of conduct and professional ethics of the job. One was professional to ask the mob to stop and the other asked them to continue,” the force PRO added.

He said the fact that the police is prepared to prosecute the officer, is a measure of its resolve to put an end to all forms of impunity in the Nigerian Police.
