Olakunle Karimu vs Oluyomi Olawore assault allegation
A video showing Olakunle Karimu allegedly being assaulted by the Nigerian Police went viral online back in July 2018.
According to the story then, Kunle had worked with Oluyomi Olawore LLP for about a year and resigned sometime in May 2018.
He had tendered his letter of resignation but the boss Mr Oluyomi Olawore principal partner of the Firm begged him to work till June 2018 so a new lawyer can fit in seamlessly during the transition.
Midway through June, the boss told him to stop work that his services were no longer required. The young lawyer thereafter demanded his outstanding salary and a compromise was reached with Oluyomi Olawor stating he would pay him till he stopped work.
A cheque was then issued to Kunle which was reportedly dishonoured by the bank on grounds that the cheque was not properly signed.
Oluyomi Olawore was alleged to have called policemen attached to the Nigerian Police Force Headquaters Annex (Kem Salem house Obalende) to bundle him out of the office.
Oluyomi Olawore LLP, the law firm allegedly behind the assault on lawyer Kunle Karimu spoke out here after a video, which showed Karimu being assaulted by the Nigerian Police allegedly on their orders, went viral and sparked outrage.
Kunle had quickly sued his former boss, requesting for a sum of N13,050,000 in compensation from his boss, Mr Olawore.
Well, it became evident to the judge and general public that he did not act within the confines of the law, and he had no evidence to support the claims that his former employer- Mr Olawore ordered the police brutality on him.
