Ashake, but recently exonerated by an advice from the Directorate of Public Prosecution, DPP, has cried out for justice, saying that his arrest was unjust.
Ahmadu also stated that the men of Adeniji Police Station, Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS, Ikeja, and State Criminal Investigation Department, Panti-Yaba, who enforced his arrest and detention, though investigated the frivolous allegations against him but could not establish any.
Narrating his ordeal during a media chat at the weekend, the community leader stated: “when I learnt that I was being wanted at the Adeniji police station, I personally reported at station on November 3, 2015, but to my surprise, the police alleged that I broke a kiosk belonging to a woman named Ola Williams.
“From Adeniji Police station, I was moved to Special Anti-robbery Squad, SARS, at Ikeja, where I was again alleged to be in possession of guns, and being a member of a secret cult, but all these I denied. I was later moved to State Criminal Investigation Department, SCID, Panti, where other suspects were joined with me before we were taken to court on December 2, 2015.
“But in all my statements at all these police stations, I denied all allegations which were instigated by one Mrs. Ola Williams, popularly called Iron Lady. But I give thanks to God for exonerating me and others.”
Ensuring that he gets justice, he had petition the Onikan Zone 2 of Nigeria Police force, Lagos.
On the killing of late Azeez Otun, a.k.a. Ashake, the police arrested three suspects namely: Adebayo Dipo, Alade Ogbulu and Olumide Koffi, (Ghanaian) who confessed to the crime after they were arrested and paraded at the Lagos state Police Command.
These three persons were published in the June 17, 2015, edition of Nation and the Punch newspapers.
The three suspects he said also confessed that their leader was one Abija, but till today, none of these three men or Abija have been prosecuted.
The community leader is pleading with the police high authority to investigate why those paraded by the police were not prosecuted till today, rather he was being persecuted maliciously.
