Lagos State Governor-elect Sanwo-Olu visits parents of slain football fan Kolade Johnson, at their family home in Lagos on Saturday. He commiserated with the family on the unfortunate death of their son whose life was cut short by some trigger happy Police men while seeing a football game.

Jide Sanwo-Olu condemns the extrajudicial killings of Nigerians most especially innocent Youths. He called on all to rise against it, and condemnation the action of the police. He said:

“It is every parents’ worst nightmare to lose a child. As a Father and Uncle, I could feel the pains and anguish of Kolade Johnson’s parents and loved ones when I paid them a visit earlier today.

The unfortunate incident that took Kolade’s life is a wake up call to all that there is need for the police hierarchy to take a second look at the operations of their rank and file.

A situation where security operatives willfully cut short the lives of our youths is unacceptable.
We should all speak against it. We must all rise against it. The police should realize that they are there to protect the citizens.

We will work in harmony with the security operatives to ensure that this kind of incident becomes a thing of the past.”
