Michael Adebolajo butchered Lee Rigby, 25, on the streets of Woolwich, South East London in May 2013, but now claims the taxpayer owes him compensation. …
The killer lost two teeth after lashing out at officers who were trying to escort him from his cell at Belmarsh prison in July 2013.
The 31-year-old’s teeth came loose after he smashed his head against a window.
Five police officers were suspended during a six-week investigation but were eventually cleared before returning to work.
Adebolajo and his accomplice Michael Adebowale, 26, received £200,000 in legal aid after murdering the Fusilier.
Adebolajo has hired a lawyer to pursue compensation of £25,000, claiming to “suffer distress, loss and damage”.
But the two-year fight could end up costing taxpayers a further £50,000 in legal costs and £25,000 for a police probe – bringing the total to £100,000.
