This is a typical story of the tag ‘wrong place, wrong time’ when Mr Gbenga(pseud) a bike man was falsely arrested after unrest in a location in Ibadan. 

Mr Gbenga was going about his daily routine of making ends meet with his bike on the 6th of July, 2021. 

He carried some passengers to Oremeji area in Ibadan, unknown to Mr Gbenga that two people had been killed earlier after a fight broke out in the area, while waiting for his passengers to pay him for the ride, he was arrested by men of the Nigeria Police Force. 

Mr Gbenga was charged to the Magistrate Court and was later remanded in prison pending legal advice. Gavel legal team in Ibadan were notified and briefed, we promptly followed up the case with the needed legal advice with the DPP which led to the discharge and acquaintance of Mr Gbenga.
