“This post is for our leaders: @muhammadubuhari@profosinbajo
@akinwunmiambode,@jidesanwoolu, @aleeygiwa… Dear Sirs, Kolade Johnson,
an innocent, young citizen of Nigeria is dead. He was the only son of a
widow, a husband and father. His only crime was being in the right place
at the wrong time… watching a football match when SARS operatives who
allegedly came to arrest someone, started shooting sporadically. Kolade
is not the first innocent victim of reckless behaviour by SARS
operatives, and he will almost certainly not be the last. It is
sickening, frustrating, and unfair.
We are tired of hearing about victims of police brutality, but never
hearing about the criminal, reckless police officers being brought to
justice. We are tired of screaming and tweeting #ENDSARS while our
innocent young people are being extorted, bullied, maimed and killed by
the very same officers who are meant to protect them. And we are tired
of our leaders remaining silent, incident after incident.
We’re going to track down Kolade’s family, pray with them and raise
money to assist them through this terrible tragedy. We hope that our
leaders will use this opportunity to ACTUALLY show that they care about
our lives and wellbeing, by tracking down the reckless officers
responsible for this murder and bringing them to justice for their
We will not let this go. Kolade was innocent and did not deserve to die.
Kolade could have been anyone of us. Please show us that you care about
PS: Anyone who has the contact details Kolade’s wife and/or Mom,
please DM @theofficialeme_ and myself. We must take care of ourselves
with or without our Government.
