Some of the appellants who got compensation of ten million naira are Adebayo Abayomi for the illegal murdering of his mother and one Hannah Olugbodi for being fired at by a police officer among others.
Meanwhile, Justice Doris Okuwobi (retrd) in her judgment disclosed that the uncultured police officers who have carried out the offences are to be duly dealt with according to law.
