Following the outrage from the Keke's Drivers Union in Rivers State, following the death of their member a keke driver who was killed by a police inspector, the Commissioner of Police, Rivers State Command Joseph Makun said that police inspector faces dismissal and prosecution.
He said this through the Rivers Command’s Spokesman, SP Nnamdi Omoni, who said that the command “was greeted this morning with the sad and unfortunate incident at Rukpokwu Junction, Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Port Harcourt.” “The Command condemns the dastardly incident and ordered immediate commencement of the Inspector’s Orderly Room Trial, who is currently being tried, will be dismissed and charged to court immediately for murder.''
He went further to express the command's and the Inspector General of Police condolences to both the deceased family and the Keke's Union in the state. He also urged them to remain law abiding because justice will be served.
