“The Executive Director of CAIDOV Gbenga Soloki and other human rights activists leveraged on the second advice of DPP without asking for the outcome of the investigation of the first advice DPP offered.

“Having called the attention of to whom it may concern to this information, i urge all human rights activists who want justice to be served in this case to study the protest letter written to the Commissioner of Justice in Lagos State so as to have a better grasp of the issue.

I also appeal to them to exercise patience, so that the stakeholders handling the case can do their job without fear or favour”. He concluded.
