Following the widespread protest of Johnson’s killing which led to the arrest of one Inspector Ogunyemi Olalekan of the Gbagada division Lagos State Police Command’s Special Anti Cultism Squad (SACS) the man responsible for shooting and killing Kolade Johnson( father of one) explained his side of the story.
We heard a distress call that we should move to Mangoro. So, on getting there, we saw a group of guys smoking Indian hemp. We thought they’re cultists and effected an arrest there.
“Suddenly, they mobbed us, me and my boys. So, in an attempt of escaping them, I fired up.
“I didn’t know how it got to meet the guy in question that was shot dead, I don’t know. I only fired one up”.
But contrary to Inspector Olalekan story, eyewitness identify as Mr Nana, claimed Olalekan had aimed his gun at them. He said Kolade left the relaxation spot where they were watching an English Premier League game on Sunday after hearing pleas for help outside.
“Kolade stood right beside me, he didn’t talk. I was the one that spoke. Next thing I saw was he pointed a gun at us and shot twice”.
Meanwhile due to incessant protest from Nigerians after the death of the Kolade and other innocent victims which sole aim was to target the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (FSARS),has yielded results. As gathered by reporters the Senate President Bukola Saraki revealed on Monday that a report on the Police Reform Bill will be laid before the upper legislative chamber on Tuesday, April 9th 2019.
