Published by Sahara Reporters on Sat, 12 Sep 2020

Lagos State Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu.Two sons of late Chief Moshood Abiola, winner of the June 12, 1993, presidential election, Kassim and Aliyu, who were arrested and detained over a robbery incident that took place at their father's residence on September 2, have approached the High Court of Lagos State in the Ikeja Judicial Division for the enforcement of their fundamental rights.SaharaReporters recall that suspected robbers raided the Lagos mansion of the late Chief Abiola and went away with property worth millions of naira.The robbers were said to have assessed the Toyin Street Crescent residence of the late politician through a canal and jumped over the high perimeter fence into the compound.Lagos State Police Commissioner, Hakeem Odumosu.Lagos State Commissioner of Police disclosed that some suspects including domestic staff were arrested in connection with the incident.But in a fundamental rights enforcement suit filed by Chief Mike Ozekhome (SAN), the duo said they were arrested at their homes by the police in Lagos over a robbery incident that was said to have occurred inside premises they shared with many other persons.The applicants told the court that they were discriminatorily singled out as a result of a complaint by their stepmother, Mrs Adebisi Abiola, who accused them of complicity in the robbery.
