Lagos judicial panel awards N20m to two victims of police brutality
The judicial panel investigating police brutality and the shooting of protesters in Lagos has awarded compensations to two victims of police brutality in the state.
The two petitioners, Kudirat Obayomi and Hannah Olugbodi, were awarded N10 million each on Friday.
Olugbodi, a 35-year-old hairdresser, on November 2020, narrated how she ended up on crutches after her left leg was shattered by a stray bullet fired by some men of the disbanded police Special Anti-Robbery Squad who were attempting to arrest a young man with tattoos in June 2018 at the Ijeshatedo area of Lagos.
