Mr. Kehinde and Mrs. Titilayo Ajibola, parents of the deceased, had approached the panel to seek justice for the killing of their son.

Addressing journalists after the hearing of the petition, the counsel to the petitioners, Barrister Kanmi Ajibola, said the parents insisted on the payment of N5billion as compensation in order to teach police an unforgettable lesson, let the officers and men of the Force bear the brunt of their brutality and to serve as a deterrent to other erring officers.

Mr Ajibola said the outcome and recommendation of the panel would determine the next line of action on the case.

The Panel adjourned the Ajibola case to 19th of February for further hearing.
