As Osun Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Police Brutality, Human Rights Violations and Related Extra Judicial Killings resumed sitting on Thursday, one of the petitioners, Mr. Adeolu Paul Sunday narrated how he was allegedly duped of N36million by four business syndicates in Lagos in 2016.

He said he was defrauded by the alleged business syndicates who were allegedly aided by the police to escape justice after being apprehended.

This is even as the panel harped on diligent prosecution, noting that it would not hesitate to strike out any case found wanting as the panel is resolute to ensure justice for all.

Recounting his ordeals at the hands of the police, Sunday, who claimed to be a businessman supplying electrical appliances and installation, said he was tricked to pay a sum of N36million into different accounts by the fraudsters.

He explained that in the quest to raise the money, he had to borrow a sum of N1.8million from his banker friend to augment the said money paid into the accounts of the syndicate members for the supply of electrical installations.

The petitioner further explained that the case was later reported at the Dugbe Police Division, Osogbo, by his friend who borrowed him N1.8million when he couldn’t refund the money on time.

“I am a practicing engineer dealing in electrical installation, inverter and solar energy installation with Certificate of incorporation RC 1256413 dated April 22 2015.

“I met one Mr. Kunle Ogunbanwo in 2016 who claimed to be a major supplier of electrical installations and we both agreed to run business together before I noticed that he had ulterior motive to defraud me.

“I started sending money into the accounts to the tune of N36million  having taken me to his different warehouses in Lagos with the assurance of prompt delivery of all I applied for without knowing that he had an intension to dupe me.
