A member of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Pastor Remmy Hazzan, has threatened to sue the police for allegedly invading his father’s house.
The police in the state, led by a Deputy Commissioner in charge of Operations, Muhammad AbdulKadir, on Saturday, allegedly stormed many houses in Ijebu and Remo believed to be the hideouts for cultists, who recently unleashed terror on the areas.
It was learnt that the police ransacked the Hazzan family house in search of the lawmaker’s younger brother, Adebayo, for his alleged involvement in a cult-related offence.
Speaking with journalists in Abeokuta on Monday, Hazzan expressed dissatisfaction with the manner the police conducted the operation.
He said, “I think the invasion of my father’s house at Omu, from the report that my father gave to me, is a clear indication of the fact that the conduct of the men of the Nigeria Police, who carried out the raid, left much to be desired. As much as I will not stand in any way between them and the search for justice, and trying to get hold of criminally-minded characters, I do not support any uncivil conduct in achieving such.”
Hazzan added, “For that, the family lawyer is already looking at the accounts of my father and the necessary steps will be taken to seek redress within the ambit of the law. We are going to take up the issue in the court against whoever is involved.
“Let me tell you that because it has got to the level where it is now, and we sense bias from many of the agencies concerned, it is no longer going to be a tea party. We intend to report this matter to the highest level of security management in this country, including the Presidency.
