Lagos — Lagos state House of Assembly, yesterday, placed a bounty of N1.25 million to unravel the perpetrators of the brutalisation of two women in Ejigbo Local Council Development Area, LCDA, last year.

Chairman of the five-man ad hoc committee investigating the matter, Mr. Ajibayo Adeyeye disclosed this at a stakeholders’ meeting on the issue, at the Lateef Jakande Auditorium, Alausa Secretariat, Ikeja.
According to Adeyeye: “Anybody that gives information that leads to the arrest of the perpetrators of the heinous act shall be given N1 million. And I will add the sum of 250,000 from my private account to increase the sum to N1.25million.”

During the deliberation, the video clip of the incident which ran for about eight minutes was played, showing how the two women were tortured by the perpetrators. The video clip moved the participants at the meeting to tears.
The President of Women Arise Initiative, Dr. Joe  Odumakin, who had previously led a protest to the House on the matter, explained that she saw the video for the first time on December 7, 2013.

Odumakin said that the greatest gift anyone could give the women was to get justice for them.
