Taiwo Atilola, mother of the 27-year-old commercial motorcycle rider, Adigun, who was allegedly shot by a policeman in Lagos on Tuesday said Adigun’s brother, Sikiru, was also arrested after the incident.
She therefore appealed to the Lagos State Police Command to release her son so as to lessen her trauma.
Taiwo said, “We have been to the police station, but they have refused to grant his release. I was left in the dark as regards his arrest until last night (Tuesday) because they didn’t want me to fall into a coma. He would have been the one doing the running around now that his brother is down.
“He must have been mistaken for one of the protesters who went on the rampage. The police succeeded in injuring my son who is the one solely taking care of me. They should not add to my sorrow, they should please release him so that I won’t develop sudden hypertension.”
