Woman demanding N100 from traders chased out of market after claiming to be Tinubu’s task force official

An unidentified woman stormed a market to collect N100 from market women, but she ended up being embarrassed.

She apparently claimed that President Bola Tinubu sent her to the market to collect levy from the traders but they did not believe her story.

Some of the market women who exposed her scam started addressing her as a thief and made attempts to chase her out of the marketplace.

The woman wore a uniform and cap to sell the story of being a member of the levy collection task force, but she came without a team.

A female trader said; “Look at this woman, she wants to collect 100 naira from us. Who sent her, she said Tinubu sent her to come and collect N100.”

In other news, a Federal High Court sitting in Lagos has ordered the Lagos State Government and the Nigeria Police to pay the sum of 5 Million Naira as compensation to Adedotun Clement, a cab driver who was publicly attacked by officials of the Lagos State Neighborhood Safety Agency and the Nigeria Police Force during the EndSARS anniversary two years ago.

During the first anniversary of the EndSARS protest on 20th October, 2021, Mr Clement was carrying a passenger from the Island to the Mainland part of Lagos, when he encountered the protest at the Lekki Toll Gate which was disrupted by officials of Lagos State and the police.

Following the pandemonium that ensued after policemen and officers of the Lagos State Neighborhood Safety Agency fired tear-gas canisters to disperse the protesters and arrested many protesters, Mr Clement temporarily abandoned his car like other motorists and ran for his life.

However, when he returned to pick his car, he was accosted, dragged, tortured and manhandled by the officers.

Lagos-based human rights lawyer and activist, Mr Inibehe Effiong, took up the case and sued the Lagos State Government, the Lagos State Neighbourhood Safety Agency, Attorney General of Lagos and the Nigeria Police.

Delivering judgment on Tuesday, March 14 in the fundamental rights case with Suit Number: FHC/CS/1862/2021, the presiding judge, Hon. Justice A. L. Allagoa, found that the treatment meted on the applicant amounted to a violation of his right to dignity and awarded the sum of N5 million as damages.
