Adedayo Adeleke, one of the occupants of the car told the panel that the patrol vehicle of JTF chased them to the point they had an accident that resulted in the death of Idris.
At the last adjourned date, the case was closed by parties involved, however, the petitioner’s counsel, Mr. Kanmi Ajibola, in one of the documents submitted to the panel, alleged that two officers of NSCDC, named; Jimi Awoniyi and Togun Babatunde were involved in the chase of Idris and friends.
Chairman of the panel, Justice Akin Oladimeji, therefore ordered that the two officers involved in the hot chase that led to Idris’ death be served a summon notice and must be at the sitting on March 5, 2021 for further defence.
