Police authorities have sacked their personnel, Inspector Benjamin Peters, who killed a corps member, Angela Igwetu, in Abuja on Wednesday.

The killer cop has also been arraigned in court over the incident.

Igwetu, who was billed to pass out of the compulsory one-year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme, was shot dead by a trigger-happy policeman in the morning.

Commissioner of Police in charge of the Federal Capital Territory, Sadiq Bello, told newsmen on Friday that Peters was “on remand awaiting commencement of trial.”

As stated by the police commissioner, the two males in the car with the corp member told detectives that they were coming from a joint.

They stated that Igwetu stood up and brought out her head through the sunroof while having fun, stressing that she was not in any danger.

“Police have taken necessary measures; the policeman that opened fire has been arrested, necessary disciplinary procedures have been concluded,” he said.

“He has been dismissed from the Force and arraigned before a court of competent jurisdiction and he is currently on remand awaiting commencement of trial.”
