Family Of Killed Newspaper Vendor Demand N500 Million As Compensation From Gbajabiamila
The family of Late Ifeanyi Okereke, the news paper vendor who was shot last week by a state security service (SSS) have requested a sum of N500 million as compensation from Gbajabiamila.
In a letter sent out to Gbajabiamila on November 23, 2020 by the Okereke’s family counsel, Mike Ozekhome (SAN), the Speaker was asked to pay the N500 million compensation even though it wouldn’t bring the dead back. Failure to meet the demand in seven days will cause them to take legal action.
“It will at least mitigate the obvious trauma and hardship the premature demise of their irreplaceable breadwinner has placed on them,” the letter read.
The family also requested that Gbajabiamila use the influence of the office to ensure the immediate prosecution of Hassan who killed Ifeanyi.
