The jury also ordered the State Ministry of Justice to provide relevant documents on a petition filed by one Ms Oluwatoyin Adetona whose children were allegedly killed by police in Iles, Osun state in 2016.
Recall that the parents of the deceased Idris Ajibola asked the jury for justice for the gruesome murder of their son, who will be persecuted to death by members of the Joint Task Force, consisting of soldiers, police, DSS and NSCDC officers.
The deceased, along with two other passengers in the car on the day of the accident, was reportedly pursued by JTF on a two-way road in Osogbo East Pass.
The victim’s car was reported to have run off the road, collided with a ditch and crashed, resulting in the immediate killing of the victim.
When the case was returned for an additional hearing on Friday, the applicant’s lawyer, Barrister Kanmi Ajibola, filed a complaint and pleaded with the panel to order two identified NSCDC employees who were among the JTF staff involved in the accident to appear.
He said that the appearance of the two mistaken officers would help the investigation and support the prosecution of the case, as the petitioner would be able to identify them by name.
In his verdict, the president of the college, Judge Akin Oladimeji (retired) granted the request and ordered the two mistaken officers – Inspector Jimi Avoni and Togun Babatunde – to appear before the commission on March 5, 2021, on an updated date.
Judge Oladimeji ordered that the subfoan be immediately handed over to two officers to appear before him for protection on an updated date.
He said the appearance of the two officers would increase the credibility of the defense of the case and further strengthen the principle of fairness and equity that were the hallmarks of the commission.
However, Judge Oladimeji postponed the consideration of the case until March 5, 2020 for further hearings.
Likewise, the jury requested the Department of Justice to provide all the necessary documents regarding the prosecution in the case presented by one Ms Oluwatoyin Adetona against the police.
Ms Adetona has asked the jury for compensation for the murder of her two children by police officers in Iles.
In her petition, Adetona claimed that two of her children were killed by police officers who, inadvertently, entered her house on Iles.
He explained that the victims who were playing in front of their house were killed by an electric pole caught in a police patrol car.
The mother of the deceased, who pleaded with the jury to force the police to track down the murderers of her children, said she was not convinced that the mistaken officers were held accountable, as police officials say.
In deciding the case, Judge Oladimeji ordered the Ministry of Justice to provide all the necessary documents in the case to improve the trial, just as he ordered the police authorities to provide relevant documents confirming the status of the alleged employees. they were actually fired by the police.
The commission revealed that it closed 21 cases out of 34 transferred.
According to the jury, 10 of the 21 completed cases are awaiting a final recommendation to the government, while the remaining 11 were canceled based on a number of violations.
The Commission also showed that 13 cases had reached various stages of criminal proceedings and reaffirmed its commitment to the administration of justice before the allotted time.
