Terrorist who murdered Lee Rigby is claiming £100,000 in compensation

Terrorist who murdered Lee Rigby is claiming £100,000 in compensation, by Matt Drake.

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.
