They were dismissed after appearing before the Police Service Commission that sat in Abuja recently, the trio include: DSP Horsfall Ntinefruo, ASP Etim Anoke and ASP Raphael Ewah. The three have been awaiting their verdict long after other junior officers involved in the case had been dismissed and are awaiting trial.

Meanwhile, the family of late Derek Maurice Ben has thanked the Director of Public Prosecution, Ministry of Justice, Cross River State for the support he has extended in ensuring that justice is done in this manner.

The family made the commendation through their Legal Counsel, Barrister James Ibor, in a letter dated 7th October, 2015 with the reference number: BRC/CAL/DPP/VOL.10/141/2015.

In the letter which was made available to CrossRiverWatch, the family reminded the Director that “the suspects are yet to be arraigned in a court of law despite conclusion of investigation in the case and the Attorney Generals recommendation for prosecution of the suspects since August 2014”.

According to the letter which was signed by the Principal Counsel, Barrister James Ibor, appealed that “necessary legal steps be taken to arraign the suspects in court as required by law”.
