Damilare Olalekan a.k.a Ajikawo, a Radio Lagos/ Eko FM Staff, in an event that played out like a hoodlum attack at gunpoint, was reportedly assaulted alongside his siblings by operative of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Divisional Headquarters, Ikotun Egbe, on Sunday 14 January, 2018.
The Radio Lagos/ Eko FM Staff, reportedly sustained head injuries after being hit with a gun butt, and bruises on his hands after handcuffed.
Narrating how the incident happened, the Eko FM Staff said;
“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 will press charges 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.”
