Banky W, Others Condemn Killing Of Kolade Johnson, Plan Protest


Nigerian artistes have leaned their voices to condemn the recent killings of Kolade Johnson by SARS personnel.

Kolade Johnson met his untimely death after he was hit by stray bullet shot sporadically by SARS personnel near where he watched the Liverpool vs Tottenham game on Sunday.

As outrage about the murder of Kolade continues Nigerian artistes like Banky W, Timing Dakolo, Falz, Davido etc have drawn the government attention to the incident and called for justice to be served.

As part of the demand for justice, a peaceful protest would be embarked on today in Lagos to reawaken the #endsars, #endpolicebrutality movement and police reform.

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 vicious crime. 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 us. Please. #JusticeForKolade 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. PPS: please repost
