It is elating and morale-boosting that we now have a willing complainant and as a result, a tenable case to present in court.

CP Idowu Owohunwa, having carefully listened to all parties, has established that there are indeed cases to answer and has therefore directed that the matter be charged to court immediately.

The CP also identified professional misconduct on the part of some of the police officers involved in the case. For this, the Command Provost has been directed to immediately commence disciplinary action against the officers concerned.

And finally, the DPO Mushin, in whose Divison all the officers aforementioned are serving, has been relieved of his posting with immediate effect.

At the hearing today were the Committee for the Defence of Human Rights (CDHR), Omolara and family, Bebex and his employees, and lawyers representing both sides "
