Lagos State Police Command Friday declined any further comments on the alleged illegal detention of late Moshood Kashimawo Olawale Abiola’s two sons, Kassim and Aliyu, who were arrested and detained over the September 2 robbery incident which took place at the residence of late politician in Ikeja.

They were said to have been detained, following a complaint that was lodged by their step-mother, Adebisi Abiola, after the robbery incident.

But, reacting to the suit instituted by Abiola’s sons, Public Relations Officer of Lagos State Police Command, Olumuyiwa Adejobi, said: “On MKO Abiola’s Sons’ Arrest: We will be silent for now because the matter is subject of litigation. We will react as when due.”
