The Nigerian Police moved quickly on Tuesday, in what appeared like succumbing to the pressure of public outrage, identified and paraded the suspected killers of Kolade Johnson – who was a victim of extra judicial killing by officers of the Federal Anti Robbery Squad, F-SARS in Lagos – It is still pertinent that the general public doesn’t forget what the SARS Officer who gruesomely murdered him said before pulling the trigger.
Alhaji Remi Lukman, the father of slain football fan, Kolade Johnson, has broken silence concerning the death of his son.
According to Lukman, the SARS officer who shot his son on the 31st of March vowed that he must kill somebody on that day.
He made this known in an interview with Punch Newspaper. Excerpt seen below.
“My son was murdered here on Sunday March 31st at about 4.30pm by the Anti-cultism team of police officers. I don’t want anybody framing things up.
“What I really needed was two things. One was immediate, the other procedurally. The immediate one is police report which will enable the mortuary to collect the corpse. The second one which is procedurally is justice over the death of my son. I want those responsible to be fished out and be brought to book.
“All these boys being killed are all youths, they all have potentials. These are the tomorrow of Nigeria. If you just decided willfully after making a statement that you are going to kill somebody here today and you actually killed somebody. That was the statement that came out from the mouth of the officer that fired the shot. Thereafter he shot in the air and two stray bullets directed at the crowd, then we need a more organized police force.
“We need a police force that will put the interest of the citizens at heart We need a police force that will dutifully handle their job. We need a police force that will add to the progress of youths, not the one that will be killing them like the one that happened on Sunday. I want the men to be brought to book I want them to be brought to justice. I want them to be giving the justice that is due” he said
