Radio Lagos/ Eko FM Staff, Damilare Olalekan popularly known as Ajikawo with his siblings were brutally assaulted by men of the Anti-Robbery Squad of the Divisional Headquarters, Ikotun Egbe on Sunday 14 January, 2018.
The Nigerian Police system certainly needs a corrective mindset overhauling through an active and a people-conscious reform. They arrested, battered the young men without any questioning whatsoever.
According to Ajikawo, it seemed like a staged event where hoodlum attack you at gunpoint and it was a shocking event to him.
He sustained injuries on the head as he was hit with rifle butt as well as bruises due to being handcuffed.
“My siblings and I were assaulted right in front of our house at 1:20PM. They actually attacked my siblings because they wanted to know why I was being physically harassed
I should press charged through my lawyers as I’ve kept a few pictures to show what was done and a few well to do citizens have witnessed my ordeal.
I wondered what would have happened if it was just a humble guy with no one to call. This is disgusting that I was beaten by the same policemen whose salary I pay through my tax?
I urge the Lagos Police command to investigate this matter as I’ve informed crime reporters about it too. If I don’t get a compensation or proper apology within 48 hours, I’d be talking to the public media about it on video.
