Mr. Demian Oyendikwe, 59, on Monday told the Edo State Judicial Panel of Inquiry for victims of SARS and related abuses that his creditors have been on his neck, asking for their money over his inability to pay those he owe as a result of the EndSARS protest.
An Inspector of Police, Mrs. Christiana Afekhai, also appeared before the Panel for a compensation for her vandalized car worth N800,000 during the #EndSARS protest.
Mr. Oyendikwe who appeared before the Panel for financial compensation over the lost of goods worth N38million, resulting from the #EndSARS protest, further told the Panel that his warehouse at Eribo Estate, Textile Mill road, Benin was completely looted by the hoodlums who hijacked the #EndSARS protest.
“The government should kindly assist me at this moment because the losses are enormous.
” I cannot help even the institutions that gave me the money are on my neck.
“That is why I came to the panel so that they can assist me and be able to liquidate those debts”, he pleaded.
On the Inspector of police demand of compensation of N800,000.00 for her car that was damaged, the Panel noted that it will be out of place to ask the state government to buy her a new car when it could be fixed.
The police officer had told the panel that where she parked her vehicle at the Ugbekun police station, that hoodlums who hijacked the #EndSARS protest, punctured the four tyres of her vehicle, broke the windscreen and made away with the battery.
The panel further agreed to visit the mechanical workshop where the vehicle is undergoing some repairs.
