Following the assassination of a Nigerian youth named Kolade Johnson who was murdered on Sunday at Mangoro, Onipetesi estate after watching a football march celebrities protest the neutralizing of Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS)
Africa News24 (An24) reported that some SARS operatives, on Sunday, stormed Olu Aboderin Street in the Onipetesi area of Lagos while the victim was watching a live English Premiership League football match between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur.
The operatives were said to have arrested a man, identified simply as Ismail, who was said to be seeing off his girlfriend to the bus stop, but residents protested against the arrest which allegedly led to shooting in the air to disperse the crowd, but a bullet hit Kolade where he stood and before he could be rushed to hospital, he gave up the ghost.
The out pour came under twitter trends see below:
An innocent person dying because of the recklessness of an organization that only exists cos of lack of value. They do Not care. At all! I'm actually fed up. I'm tired. @MBuhari pls let someone pay for this. Pls. They can't keep doing this to YOUR people and getting away with it.
