Jay Abatan’s brother’s long fight for justice

Michael Abatan’s battle to find out who killed his brother outside a Brighton nightclub has lasted more than a decade.

Jay Abatan, a father of two young children, suffered serious head injuries outside the Ocean Rooms in January 1999.

Five days later, the 42-year-old’s life support machine was turned off.

Two men were charged with manslaughter, but the charges were dropped before reaching court.

Michael Abatan has fought to find out exactly who struck his brother that night, causing him to fall and fracture his skull on the pavement.

He always hoped the inquest would provide an opportunity for new evidence to come to light.
