I refer to the command press release on 20/04/2024 concerning the unfortunate incident resulting in the death of Mr. Emmanuel Okocha.

1 . Disciplinary actions have been concluded by the Abia state police Command. Relevant stake holders including the family of the deceased were carried along at every step of the process.

2 . Police Corporal Obagi Njok ( as he then was) was found guilty of discreditable conduct with misuse of firearm and has therefore been dismissed from the Nigeria Police Force. Investigation into the criminal aspects of his conduct has also been concluded and the matter has therefore been handed over to the office of the Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice Abia state on 24/05/2024 for prosecution in court.
