Creditors are at war with a warehouse owner who lost his stock worth N38m during the EndSARS protest in Benin few months ago.
SARS is the acronym for Special Anti-Robbery Squad, a unit of the Nigeria Police that was recently disbanded by the federal government.
The distraught 59-year-old man, Mr. Demian Oyendikwe disclosed this when he appeared before the Edo State Judicial Panel of Inquiry for victims of police brutality and related abuses for financial compensation.
He told the panel that his warehouse at Eribo Estate, Textile Mill road Benin was completely looted by the hoodlums who hijacked the #EndSARS protest.
Oyendikwe, said since the incident, his creditors have been mounting pressure on him to pay the money.
“The government should kindly assist me at this moment because the losses are enormous.
“I cannot help even the institutions that gave me the money are on my neck.
“That is why I came to the panel so that they can assist me and be able to liquidate those debts”, he pleaded.
Meanwhile, the judicial panel of Inquiry has asked an Inspector of Police, Mrs. Afekhai Christiana who appeared before it for a compensation for her vandalized car worth N800,000, that it will be out of place to ask the state government to buy her a new one when it could be fixed.
The police officer had told the panel that her vehicle was allegwy vandalized by hoodlums where she parked her vehicle at the Ugbekun police station in Ikpoba-Okha Local Government Area of the State.
The panel however, promised to visit the mechanical workshop where the vehicle is undergoing some repairs.
