According to Adedotun, he’s only an Uber driver and he’d left his car to join others in running away when they heard gunshots. He returned to look for his car only for him to find it moved from where he left it.

The police picked up Adedotun and tried to force him into the Black Maria but he resisted with full force asking what his crime is. He continued to plead with the officers who were persistent that he entered the van.
