In the suit filed through their lawyer, Olalekan Ojo (SAN), they urged the court to declare that their continued detention at the Homicide Section of the Lagos State Police Command, Panti, since October 4, 2023, constituted a violation of their rights.

In the affidavits attached to their suits, the deponents said, “Their travails started between October 3 and 4, 2023 when they were arrested by the police on the alleged connection of the applicants with the death of one Ilerioluwa Aloba, aka Mohbad.

“The Commissioner of Police on the 4th of October 2023, sought an order in the Magistrates’ Court, held at Yaba to remand them for 30 days.
