However, on Friday, 27 November 2020 ordered the Nigerian police to pay N50 million compensation to the family of Daniel.

The family had approached the court seeking N1bn as compensation for the unlawful killing of their son.

It was gathered that defendants neither appeared nor filed responses in two sittings. They were said to have appeared in court on the last adjourned date of November 23 when they presented a counter-affidavit that was rejected by the court.

The presiding judge, Justice, S.C. Amadi, while delivering judgement in the case granted the four prayers of the claimant and declared that the gruesome murder of Sleek contravened the constitution of Nigeria. Justice Amadi held that the failure of the police to arraign the officers who killed Sleek was illegal and awarded N50million against the defendants.

This is coming when Nigerians from all background are calling on the government to end police brutality and reform the police force.
