The Police Corporal Samuel Ojana, who killed a bus driver in Onitsha, Anambra State,Thursday had been dismissed from Nigerian Police.

Ojana, who was arraigned yesterday at Onitsha Chief Magistrate court over the murder of the bus driver, Edwin Eze is now in Onitsha Police custody.

The murder of the driver sparked off violent protest that swept across the commercial town as people demonstrated their anger against the extortion and intimidation of motorists in Onitsha by the police.

Following the crisis that almost assumed ethnic colouration, the Commissioner of Police in the state, Ibrahim Muktari and other senior police officers have relocated to Onitsha to beef up security and build confidence in the residents especially among the Hausa community.
