”They were subsequently arranged for departmental orderly room trial on a three-count charge of Corrupt practices, Discreditable conduct, and Disobedience to a lawful order.  They were found guilty of all the charges and subsequently dismissed from the force to serve as a deterrent to others in their shoes.”the statement read

Oyeyemi added that the victim, who was also present to give evidence, was full of praise for the commissioner of police and the management team, for their prompt response to the incident, which he said rekindled his hope in the Nigeria police force.
