Aggrieved Ondo Lawmakers Write IGP To Take Over Investigation



The 18 Ondo state aggrieved lawmakers who were allegedly assaulted on the floor of the House yesterday have petitioned the Inspector General of Police to take over the investigations of the alleged assault on them.

The lawmakers also accused the Commissioner of Police in the state of complicity in the attack against them.

They have however, instituted a fundamental right suit against the CP before the Federal High Court sitting in Abuja.

The lawmakers had written their petition and filed their suit through their counsel, Dr. Kayode Ajulo.

The letter dated November 27 reads in part, “We are Solicitors to Hon Olamide Abayomi George, Hon. Malachi Coker, Hon. Abimbola Olutope Fajolu, Hon. Jumoke Akindele, Hon. Arowele Ayodeji Samuel, Hon.
