Mr. Rilwan Saheed, who he lived with in the same compound, told me on the telephone that he was arrested for street fighting.
“Shakoor’s brother and I went to SARS office in Ikeja. We met one policeman, Ade, aka Bullet.
He said Ogedengbe was investigating the case and that guns and cutlasses were recovered from the scene of the fight. Bullet said somebody told them to waste Shakoor.
“I went there several times, they didn’t allow me to see him while relatives of other suspects arrested for the same offence were allowed to see them. Each time I went there, I paid N2,000 for his feeding. At a point, they stopped collecting money from me.
