Sanwo-Olu Promises To Pay Uber Driver’s N5m Compensation

Old Naira Notes Remain Legal Tender In Lagos –  Sanwo-Olu

Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu of Lagos State, Southwest Nigeria has reconsidered his decision to appeal the Federal High Court judgement in favour of Clement Adedotun, the Uber driver who was assaulted during the first anniversary of the #EndSARS protest in October 2021.

Gatekeepers News reports that the High Court had mandated the State government to pay Adedotun N5 million compensation after he was assaulted by the Lagos State Neighborhood Agency and the police.

On Friday, the Lagos State Government filed an appeal over the March 14 ruling.

However, Sanwo-Olu while reacting to the development, said he was “committed to upholding the rule of law and protecting citizens’ rights with empathy and authority.”

The Lagos Governor said, “I recently became aware of the case involving Mr. Clement Adedotun and the judgement by the Federal High Court, and I understand the impact this legal battle has had on him.

“After reviewing Mr. Clement’s case, I’ve directed the Honorable Attorney General to set up a meeting and pay him the compensation awarded by the Court.

“Although the State Government has appealed the ruling, I’ve interceded in this instance in the interest of the public good, and requested that the State’s Attorney General comply with the court’s ruling.”

Sanwo-Olu stressed that “As a strong advocate for the rule of law, I commend all parties for seeking justice through the appropriate channels, and I remain committed to upholding the rights of all Lagosians.”
