In a letter written by his lawyer, Inibehe Effiong, Adedotun also demanded that disciplinary measures be taken against the culprits 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 saw the destruction done to his vehicle by agents of the state government.ijeomadaisy 20211023 0004

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 their demands or face legal action.
