After due considerations of the circumstances that led to the shooting of two officials of Federal Road Safety Corps by a police aide attached to the Speaker of the Abia State House of Assembly, the  command has dismissed police corporal Iroh Orji from service. 
 
The Commissioner of Police, Leye Oyebade says Corporal Orji was over zealous and irresponsible in his action, and therefore failed to represent what the police stand for. 
 
In another development, leaders of the Pan Niger Delta forum have threatened to pull out of the ongoing peace in the Niger Delta region by the first of November if government fails to implement agreements reached with leaders of the region in November last year.
 
Leader of the group, Edwin Clark, who announced this at a media briefing in Abuja, revealed that leaders in the region are under pressure from the youths and other groups because of non-implementation of these agreements.
