But because, the DPO, Alapere Police Station and Commissioner of Police (CP) refused to act following the official report to them, this gave Rasheed Aminu and his co-travelers audacity to act the script of descending on the harmless woman by beaten her to a stupor with a dangerous weapon where the innocent woman sustained body injuries before She was rushed to unknown hospital for emergency treatment.

Speaking on the dastard incident through a statement on Saturday, CHRSJ’s Executive Chairman, Comrade Adeniyi Alimi Sulaiman, declared that the Lagos Police boss and his PPRO were refused to act because of fear of two (2) Corporal Army that involved in the attack of the innocent woman, adding that instead of State Police boss to direct the Divisional Police Officer (DPO) Alapere Police Station to arrest the alleged three culprits that are; Rasheed Aminu, Baale Oko-Agbon and Oba Agboyi Ketu,forgetting that they did not have any immunity.
