Man Asked To Pay N1m To Claim Son’s Corpse, Calls On Tinubu, Sanwoolu Other Stakeholders For Rescue


A middle aged man Mr. Taoreed Adewale Ajenifuja has called on President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Lagos State Governor and well meaning Nigerians to come to his rescue.


The Printer cum politician who resides in Shomolu area of Lagos narrated his ordeal to Mega Media and said he has written a passionate letter to the Lagos State governor Mr, Babajide Sanwoolu concerning his predicament.

According to him, “My son, Abdubakre Ayoade Ajenifuja was invited out from the house where he lived with my father (his own grandfather) in Ikorodu around 9am sometimes in July, 2023 by one Samuel Adetola Diya who lives in that neigbourhood.

Samuel Adetola Diya that invited him out.

“Later that day, I was called upon that my son was involved in an Okada accident and was taken to Ikorodu General Hospital. When I got to the hospital, I saw him tied to the bed in both hands and legs, separate apart; as he was restless on the bed in excruciating pain (I have the video of him) he wasn’t in a state to say anything to anybody but he was later transferred to AYINKE HOUSE (LASUTH IKEJA).


“Getting there, I was asked to deposit N300,000 for the commencement of his treatment. I ran helter-sketer to raise the money to save my son but to cut a long story short the boy died and the Hospital demanded that I pay a balance of N550,000 which includes mortuary fees before I can take him out for burial. I couldn’t raise the money in my mood of mourning and this dragged on for some months. The Hospital and mortuary bill kept increasing to over N1m (One Million Naira) I later struggled through the streets of Lagos even to my enemies to raise N600,000 (Six Hundred Thousand Naira) and I pleaded with AYINKE HOUSE to take what I could raise but they refused, saying I must pay to the last kobo even as the bill keeps increasing with N3,000 mortuary fees every day.


“During this traumatic experience, I accused and arrested Samuel Adetola Diya who took my son out where he met the cause of his untimely death, which we are yet to unravel but the police released him in a jiffy, leaving me with my agony.” Ajenifuja appealed to all Nigerians to intervene in this matter so he can lay the unfortunate event and his son to rest
