A widow, Alhaja Alimot Asake Kifuli, has said that her life and that of her grandchildren and tenants are in serious danger, following the activities of some street miscreants led by one Ogun Jelili Ajulo living in Makoko area of Yaba, Lagos.
Narrating her ordeal in the hands of the miscreants, Alhaja Kufili said her expanse property, located at 56/62, Church Street, Makoko, Yaba, has been turned to Indian hemp joint by some miscreants living in Olulu Street, Makoko.
In a petition signed by A.R Fatoki & Associates and addressed to the Assistant Inspector General of Police (AIG) Zone 2, Lagos, Alhaja Kifuli said her travails in the hands of Ajulo, who resides on number 13 Olulu Street, and Afeez Orebeka, Kazeem Adekanbi, Lola Omo Ilaje, Akumalu, aka Omo Ibo and Babatunde Ajumobi, began sometime in January, 2020 when she complained about their activities on her property.
“I was admitted into the hospital for an ailment and I was discharged on 9th January, 2020 and was recuperating at home when I noticed Ajulo, and his gang converged on my veranda smoking Indian hemp.
“When I objected, pointing out my fragile health condition, they descended on me, not minding my advanced age, and tore my cloths and pushed me to the ground, threatening to rape me if I raise any objection again.
“It took the intervention of Jelili’s wife and other people in the area before he left me alone, but threatened to come back and finish me off if I said anything more,” she stated.
She said initial attempts made by the assailant’s father to desist from attacking her was rebuffed by Jelili, while one Mrs. Doyin Abejoye, a tenant in her house, who tried to intervene was also assaulted.
“My property was vandalised with the windows broken, and some shops destroyed.”
In the petition, her lawyers claimed that the matter was reported at the Adekunle police station, Yaba, but the police were yet to take any decisive action on the matter.
