Oasis Magazine had reported that the Police Service Commission on Thursday in a statement signed by Ikechukwu Ani, Head of Press and Public Relations, granted approval for the suspension of the officer from duty with immediate effect.

The commission directed that the final investigation into the matter should be concluded to enable the Commission to take further necessary action.

Meanwhile, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, on Thursday, had stated that the trigger-happy officer, Vandi, should be charged with a triple homicide, considering that the deceased was reportedly pregnant with a set of twins.

Sowore said that following confirmation that the deceased was pregnant with twins, the policeman did not only kill the lawyer but also her unborn children.

The human rights activist decried the increasing impunity displayed by police in the country, saying that ASP Vandi must be brought to justice.
