The family of the News Vendor, late Ifeanyi Okereke who was killed by a security aide of Femi Gbajabiamila, Speaker of the House of Representatives is demanding for 500million from him.
The demand was contained in a letter by Mike Ozekhome, the Family’s counsel.
“Our clients have instructed us to make from your good self, the following modest demands: That you use your good offices to ensure the immediate prosecution of your security aide (Abdullahi Hassan), who went on a frolic of his own, clearly acted outside the purview of his duty and responsibility by shooting to death an innocent, harmless and armless citizen,” Ozekhome said.
“That you adequately compensate the Okereke family with a modest sum of N500m only.
“This monetary demand can never adequately replace or take the place of their son, husband, brother, and breadwinner’s life. But it will at least mitigate the obvious trauma and hardship the premature demise of their irreplaceable breadwinner has placed on them.”
The lawyer also said legal steps will be taken if the speaker doesn’t concede to the demands within 7 days.
Gbajabiamila said he had visited the family of the deceased to console them and also handed the security aide for discipline.
