The Lagos State Police Command has recommended for the dismissal of Inspector Olalekan Ogunyemi from the Nigeria Police Force after an orderly-room found him guilty of unlawfully killing a football fan, Kolade Johnson, on Sunday.
His co-accused, Sergeant Godwin Orji was however discharged and acquitted.
The State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bala Elkana, said in a statement on Thursday that following his dismissal, Ogunyemi had been handed over to the Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, Panti, for prosecution in a conventional court.
According to Elkana, Ogunyemi and Orji were tried on three counts of discreditable conduct, unlawful and unnecessary exercise of authority and damage to clothing and other articles contrary to the Police Act and Regulations.
However Orji was set free as there was no evidence of him shooting.
