A legal practitioner, Liborous Oshomah, said certain persons of the Nigeria Police will probably benefit from the death of a young commercial motorcyclist, Olalekan, known as Okada rider, killed on Tuesday by a policeman in Ikorodu, Lagos state. Mr Oshomah made this statement at a Channels Television’s morning program on Tuesday.

“The issue is nobody is talking about compensation for the family,” but rather people will benefit from the mishap as “committees will be set up to investigate this. Some people will be sent from Abuja, a special squad to investigate. They would stay in a hotel. They would be paid estacode, out of office allowance and all of that and at the end of the day the report will not see the light of day,” he said.

Mr Oshomah added that such incidents happen in other parts of the country regularly but they are hardly made public, probably due to minimal-media presence.

When responding to the Commissioner of Police, Umar Manko, who called to aggrieved colleagues of the murdered Okada rider to adhere to traffic laws and keep calm, Mr Oshomah said ‘human life’ but not the traffic laws is the main issue.

Continuing this thought, he accused the government for placing low value on the lives of citizens which is why the people

“find it very convenient these days to put our hope and our lives in the hands of pastors because government has failed in all sectors.”

The government is guilty in this case, Mr Oshomah said, decrying the public conduct of police officers who in his opinion, should be examined psychologically and trained appropriately before they are empowered with ammunition.

It will be reminded, that Okada rider was shot on Tuesday, August 20, by a policeman attached to the Rapid Response Squad. His death was followed by protests that paralyzed commercial activities in Ikorodu area of Lagos.
