Court discharges PCN Commandant, Dickson Akoh of all Charges
The National Commandant of the Peace Corps of Nigeria (PCN), Amb. (Dr.) Dickson Akoh, was on Tuesday discharged of the 13-count criminal charges preferred against him by the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Ibrahim Kpotum Idris.
The Nigeria Police had, in March 2017, slammed Akoh with a 90-count charge but later amended it to 13-count charge, after it was observed that most of the charges were repetitive.
But Justice John Tsoho, while ruling on a motion of notice filed by Barrister John Ochogwu, on behalf of Kanu Agabi Chamber, described the action of the Police as an ”impunity”, saying the Police authority lacks moral justification to prosecute Akoh in the criminal matter, until the Police Boss obeys subsisting court orders emanating from the suit.
