BLOOD MONEY: Lee Rigby’s Muslim murderer Michael Adebolajo has launched a £100,000 compensation bid over allegations that prison guards left him mentally scarred. (As if running down a soldier in the streets of London, then trying to cut off his head wasn’t proof of his pre-existing mental derangement?)
Breitbart The killer claims he was left with a “psychiatric injury” from a scuffle in 2013 in which the 32-year-old lost two teeth after lashing out at prison officers.
Adebolajo and his accomplice Michael Adebowale were found guilty of murdering the 25-year-old Fusilier Rigby near his barracks in Woolwich, London, in 2013. The pair — both Muslim converts — mowed him down with a car before attempting to behead the soldier with a knife and meat cleaver, as shocked passersby telephoned for emergency services.
In a writ that has now been officially passed on to the High Court, Adebolajo is wanting £25,000 after claiming to “suffer distress, loss and damage” on remand at Belmarsh jail in London.
But with costs for a police investigation and legal fees taken into consideration, the two-year battle is likely to cost taxpayers around £100,000 in total for the jihadi’s claim.
Adebolajo had warned guards to “watch themselves”, and asked “Allah to strike down his oppressors” at the high-security unit, where jail staff regarded him as “extremely volatile” according to defence papers served by the Ministry of Justice.
Fearing an attack when the killer suddenly dropped his hands from his head and spun round to confront officers escorting him from a phone call, an officer moved to restrain him but he ducked before others held him down on the bed.
