The statement reads: “The Managing Director of Africa Independent Television, Dr Mrs. Oluwatosin Dokpesi who had arrived from Lagos complained of serious stomach cramps, and was rushed to the Child Care and Awareness hospital in Wuse 2.


“She was accompanied by her cousin Ms Abolore Sode and an aide, Ms Aisha Adamu. They were escorted by the deceased sergeant. They were trailed by the Honda Accord and as soon as Mrs. Dokpesi alighted from the car and entered the hospital, the assailants attacked them.

They did not go with the Prado vehicle No APP 577DK nor did they collect any items. The driver said that the assailants said in Hausa that “He is not there. Bastard! We will still get him”.
