A lawyer to suspected Badoo kingpin, Abayomi Alaka, who was recently nabbed by the Lagos State Police Command, Babatunde Ojehomon, has petitioned Vice President Yemi Osinbajo, the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, and the National Assembly over alleged violation of his client’s rights.
Ojehomon, in the petition, stated that the sealing of his client’s property by the Lagos State Government and police’s declaration of Alaka as a wanted individual were actions that trampled on his (Alaka’s) rights.
The petition partly reads: “We affirm that originating processes in the matter have been served on the respondents since August 2017 and this case had come up for hearing once before a vacation judge and twice before Justice Hassan of the Federal High Court, Lagos Division.
“The respondents were not only absent on those occasions but have failed, neglected or refused to file any processes in response to our client’s case against them.
“It is shocking how the respondents have again come to the public declaring our client, who is an applicant before a superior court of record, wanted over the allegation of Badoo cult killings.
“Even though we are putting our papers together to seek a legal remedy against the unlawful sealing of our client’s property, we have resolved to exhaust all available administrative remedies in the light of the recent events that have concretised our suspicion that Imohimi has a personal axe to grind with our client.”
