Four policemen are to die by hanging for killing a commercial motorcycle operator in 2016 on Goodluck Jonathan Boulevard, Akwa Ibom State.
The four convicted policemen are, Inspectors Moses Akpaete, Idoko Sampson, Corporals Enobong Udo and Godwin Nnanna.
They had since been dismissed from the force as they last served at the ‘C’ Division of the Akwa Ibom Police Command.
The trial judge, Justice Ifiok Ukana, found the officers guilty of conspiracy in the murder of one Felix Akpan of Ibiakpan in Ibiono Ibom Local Government Area of the state.
It was learned that the officers, while on patrol, shot at the late motorcyclist for allegedly refusing to stop for “settlement.” The motorcyclist was accused of operating along areas marked “prohibited” in Uyo.
