NEWSCASTARS.COM have confirmed that Kassim and Aliyu Abiola, children of the late MKO Abiola who were arrested by the police for masterminding the robbery attack in their family home in Lagos weeks ago, have been released.
Report had gone viral that one of their father’s widows, Adebisi allegedly accused them of the incident, but she has denied being behind her step-sons’ arrest.
However, the late politicians’ sons secured their freedom after instituting a N100 million lawsuit against the police over violation of their fundamental human right.
Their lawyer, Mike Ozekhome confirmed their release adding that Lola Abiola-Edewor, first daughter of late businessman, and another relative, signed an undertaking with the police over the bail of the brothers.
Report from the Cable reveal that Ozekhome added that four suspects have been charged before a magistrate’s court over the robbery.
“Yes, they have been released. There was no condition attached to their release because they did not participate in the robbery.
“Those who are the real suspects have been charged before a magistrate’s court. The only reason they were detained was that the police said they were rude to them. Is that why you detain them for almost two weeks?”
