House of representatives Speaker, Femi Gbajabiamila, have been asked to ignore the N500m compensation demanded by the family of the newspaper vendor who was shot and killed by a DSS operative attached to the Speaker.
The family of the slain newspaper vendor, Ifeanyi Okereke had requested the sum of 500 million as compensation for the death of their son.
While reacting, the wife of the deceased, Josephine Okereke, has disowned her husband’s family stating that she is still committed to the promise the speaker made to her.
She said the family demanded more, adding that nothing could bring her dead husband back to life.
Josephine who spoke at a press conference in Abuja on Thursday said she was not aware of the pre-litigation process, urging the Speaker to ignore the family and fulfil his promises to her and her two children.
The Speaker on Saturday, November 21, paid a visit to the family of the vendor to condole with the wife and family where he ordered for the registration of a Trust Fund to cater for the needs of the family of the deceased.
The speaker also promise to take care of the children and their responsibilities especially their education till they get to the age of 21.
