A commercial tricycle rider, otherwise called keke rider, Dayyabu Anwalu, has won a case against some police officers as the court awarded him N3 million. In a photo shared by Lawyer Abba Hakima, the keke rider held up his cheque for the sum as he maintained a smile.
Many Nigerians who reacted to the video appreciated the lawyer for working hard to ensure justice was served.Anwalu, thus became a millionaire overnight. This was after the Federal High Court fined the Police Service Commission on his behalf.
The sum of N3m was awarded to the driver as the court ordered an immediate payment from the Force’s account. The development was shared by a lawyer, Abba Hakima, on his Facebook page.
The officers who were found guilty of maltreating Dayyabu are Abdullahi Duara, Khalifa, and former DPO of Kuntau Police Station, CSP Abdullahi. The lawyer said he hopes that the justice the keke rider got, would serve as a big lesson to other police officers.
