- Disciplinary procedures have commenced against officers who killed Tina
- They are ASP Theophilus Otobo and Inspector Oguntoba Olamigoke
- The police also promised to charge them to court after the procedure
The Lagos state police command has commenced disciplinary procedures against officers who were accused of mistakenly shooting dead a teenage girl.
According to police, the conduct of the two officers ASP Theophilus Otobo and Inspector Oguntoba Olamigoke fell short of professional standards.
It said: "In view of the above, the command has commenced forthwith, internal disciplinary proceedings against the two officers. While the ASP has been served an Official Query in line with the provisions of the Public Service Rules, Inspector Oguntoba Olamigoke is undergoing an Orderly-Room trial (in-house ‘court' trial) at the State Command Provost Office.
"The ASP will be appearing before the Force Disciplinary Board sitting in Abuja and their recommended punishments will be forwarded to the Police Service Commission for approval," he said.
Going further, the "CP assures that as soon as the internal disciplinary proceedings have been duly exhausted and culpability of the indicted officers established, they will be arraigned in a court of competent jurisdiction for prosecution."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that following the unjust killing of a 16-year-old girl and the brutal rape and murder of a UniBen student Vera Omozuwa inside a church, Nigerian musician Falz has joined several other Nigerians to condemn the murders.
In a recent tweet, he stated that injustice has continued to thrive in the country, adding that enough was enough as he demanded justices for the innocent victims.
He wrote: "It’s so exhausting to see injustice continue to thrive time after time. Every time we say NOT AGAIN, and then there is a new story. Enough is enough. It’s too disheartening. Justice must be served for the innocent souls we keep on losing. #JusticeForTina #JusticeForUwa"
In another post, he called for a protest, stating that it is not enough that people react on social media, from their homes as justice needs to be served.
His message reads: "It is important that we are fearless and we are ready to challenge the government through peaceful protests. It’s not enough to sit in our houses and post on socials. Justice must be served #JusticeForUwa #JusticeForTina."
