Amir Ajala petitions Police, demands arrest of author of social media report against him
January 31, 2024
Islamic scholar and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Hajj Monsur Consolidated Travels Limited, Amir Qamardeen Ajala, has petitioned the Nigeria Police Force through the Zone 2 Command in Lagos over a scathing remark made against him in a video produced and posted on social media by one Shakiru Adebare a.k.a. Okanlomo.
In the said video, Okanlomo alleged that Amir Ajala was detained by the police and later went to a POS to collect money in order to secure his release.
Amir Ajala said he considered this allegation as defamation of character, adding that the conduct was intended to bring his hard earned reputation to disrepute.
Addressing a section of the media in Lagos recently, Amir Ajala called for the arrest of Okanlomo to immediately face prosecution.
Amir Ajala said, “Mr, Shakiru Adebare posted a video of myself and my family on his page Al hizat world wide and Truth TV without my approval. The content therein was that I was detained for seven hours at zone 2 police station showing the images of myself and my wife and that the money I was counting in the video was used to procure my bail.
According to him, “I was never detained at zone 2 as he claimed or at any police station in Lagos State or anywhere in Nigeria.
“I have never met Mr. Shakiru Adebare Alias Okanlomo anywhere before.
“I have written to the Assistant Inspector General of Police at Zone 2 command, Onikan Lagos State.
I consider these false allegations as criminal, defamation of character, cyber bullying, cyber stalking, likely to cause breach of peace against me and my family and put my hard earned reputation into disrepute.
“Recently, the same Okanlomo was stopped from travelling at M.M.A international airport where he was apparently trying to escape investigation. It was gathered that his passport was seized and was detained at Alagbon police station following a petition written by Adepoju’s families at Zone 11, Osogbo, Osun State.
“He was later invited for questioning at Zone 2, because of a petition written by ACADIP International. Apart from my own petition at Zone 2, the purveyor of this false report has no less than six petitions written against him by different individuals.
It was gathered that his international passport seized earlier had been returned to him and he might escape prosecution over these false allegations.
He added that he had petitioned the Police through the Zone 2 command and hoped that action would be taken to bring the full weight of the law on him.
He said if the suspect is allowed to travel out of the country, he would continue his tirade of abuse, defaming well meaning Nigerians through social media. He appealed that the culprit should be arrested and tried for his offences.
