A civil right group, the Centre for Human Rights and Social Justice, CHRSJ, has raised an alarm over moves by personnel attached to the Force Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, F.C.I.I.D, Alagbon, Ikoyi, to kill a retired pensioner, Tajudeen Adeleke Ajikobi, over a land issue.
The group said in a statement that the officer, Geoffrey is colluding with some land grabbers and thugs to dispossess the 89-year old retired teacher of his land measuring over 200 acres located in Odan-Igbomasa in Agosasa Area of Yewa South Local Government of Ogun State.
In the statement, signed by the Executive Chairman of CHRSJ, Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman, on Wednesday, the group accused Geoffrey of disregarding a series of judicial pronouncements on the dispute by siding with suspects believed to be foreigners to dispossess Pa. Ajikobi of his land.
“We have it on good authority that after our group reported Geoffrey to higher police authorities on Monday; he has embarked on series of schemes aimed at grabbing the said land from Pa. Ajikobi. This is coming after he has failed to fraudulently obtain money from him.”
“Pa. Ajikobi has informed us that he (Inspector Geoffrey) has been issuing series of threats to him through his phones.
The group stated that the latest in the series of the threats came on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 when Pa. Ajikobi began to receive numerous calls from him, “threatening him to disembark from a journey that he won’t see the end.
The group urged the Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Police Service Commission (PSC), the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) to dismiss and prosecute Geoffrey from service with immediate effect for perverting the cause of justice, saying that refusal to do so would attract mass action, which will be akin to the #Endsars advocacy .
“We are calling on the three institutions to dismiss and prosecute Geoffrey for acts prejudicial to service discipline; otherwise, we will not hesitate to picket Alagbon before the end of November,” the statement warned.
