Making the submission in a Whatsapp chat with a group of youths under the aegis of the Ikorodu Division Youth Movement, the Chairman of NBA Ikorodu Branch, Mr Bayo Akinlade disclosed that the association will be seeking for compensation for all victims of the police attack although more focus will be put on the family of the late Adijat. 

It would be recalled that BlackBox Nigeria has earlier reported that NBA had taken the case to represent the late Adijat’s family probono in order to ensure that justice is served.

“We are looking at asking for 100 million naira as a start. Even if it is negotiable but we have to accept that no amount of money can heal the wounds of the loss,” Akinlade said. 

Barrister Akinlade further disclosed that “at the end of this process, we want to make a statement that the weak amongst us will not be trampled upon because NBA Ikorodu is awake and will protect the most vulnerable people.”
