#EndSARS Memorial: Uber Driver Assaulted By LNSC Demands N500 Million Compensation

#EndSARS Memorial: Uber Driver Assaulted By LNSC Demands N500 Million Compensation (Updated: 7 months ago)


An Uber driver, Clement Adedotun, who was assaulted by officials of the Lagos State Neighborhood Safety Corps (LNSC) and Nigeria Police Force during the first anniversary of the #EndSARS protest at the Lekki toll gate in the state on Wednesday, October 20, has demanded compensation,

The man has demanded a N500 million compensation from the state government .

In a letter written by his lawyer, Inibehe Effiong, Adedotun also demanded that disciplinary measures be taken against the men who assaulted him and that they should be prosecuted in court in line with the Anti-Torture Act and the Criminal Law of Lagos State. He is also demanding a written apology from the state government.

Inihebe in a statement released said Adedotun's vehicle has been returned but in a bad condition. The letter stated that the agents of the state government broke and damaged the front windscreen of his Toyota Corolla. The vehicle was in good condition before it was towed away on Wednesday, October 20. But upon reaching where the vehicle was taken to on Friday, 22nd October 2021, Adedotun said he saw the destruction done to his vehicle by agents of the state government.

Inibehe said the implication is that Adedotun cannot use the vehicle to earn a living until it is repaired.

Reacting to news of the sanctions placed on the erring officers by the Lagos State Neighborhood Safety Agency (LNSA), Inibehe said ''while we commend the Lagos State Government for admitting that the conduct of its agents was criminal and unprofessional, we find the two months suspension meted on the two officers grossly insufficient and unacceptable. It is not a deterrence. The officers should be dismissed and diligently prosecuted in a court of law to serve as a deterrence to others.''

Inibehe said the Lagos State Government has 48 hours to give in to their demands or face legal action.
