#EndSARS Victim Appears Before Police Brutality Panel

A victim of #EndSARS protest, Chief Tunde Mustapha, has appealed to Oyo state government to come to his aid by renovating his damaged building which was vandalized by unknown hoodlums during the protests in Iseyin.                  

Chief Mustapha made the appeal while appearing before the Oyo State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Police Brutality and Other Related Matters to defend his petition.

The 86-year-old man said his house situated at No. 2, Omoloju Area, Iseyin, Oyo State was vandalized by unknown hoodlums who besieged his one-storey building occupied by staff members of Bank of Agriculture and Nigeria Immigration Service.

He said the hoodlums broke the house with harmful weapons and carried away properties belonging to the occupants.        

The petitioner presented a compact disk containing the video of what transpired on the ill-fated day, which was done by his son, Kamil Mustapha, alongside photographs of the vandalized building to the panel.

Chief Mustapha’s estate valuer, Seyi Adebayo, put the cost of the damaged properties at three million, thirty six thousand, two hundred and fifty naira.

The panel, discovering irregularities in the valuer’s report therefore adjourned the hearing to 10th March, 2021 for necessary amendment in the report and further hearing.
