Family of man killed during police chase demands N5bn
The parents of the late Idris Ajibola who was allegedly chased to death by yet-to-be-identified police officers on Friday demanded N5 billion compensation.
They made the demand at the Osun Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Police Brutality, Human Rights Violations and Related Extra Judicial Killings on Friday.
Titilayo Ajibola, mother of the deceased, told journalists after tendering some documents as exhibits through her counsel before the panel, insisted that the police and other concerned authorities must fish out the killers of her son and pay the family a sum of N5 billion as compensation.
The counsel to the petitioners, Barrister Kanmi Ajibola, said the parents insisted payment of the compensation in order to “teach police an unforgettable lesson, let the officers and men of the Force bear the brunt of their brutality and to serve as a deterrent to other erring officers.”
The panel adjourned the Ajibola case to February 19 for further hearing.
