Again, Nigerians Seek To #EndSARS Over Kolade Johnson's Murder

Nigerians have again sought to #EndSARS in reaction to the death of Kolade Johnson, a football fan, who was shot dead by policemen from the Anti-Cultism Unit (SARS) of Lagos State Command.

Earlier that Johnson’s death occurred when an unmarked commercial bus visited Mangoro/Onipetesi community in Lagos, Nigeria’s commercial city, on Sunday afternoon in search of youths dressed wildly and rocking dreadlocks.

In an attempt to disperse a crowd which had gathered during the raid, one of the police operatives shot dead Johnson, who was trying to leave the scene after watching English Premier League match between Liverpool and Tottenham.

Apparently displeased with the development, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to express their grievances with Johnson’s death and in the process called for the immediate disbandment o the unit.

Here are some of the reactions.

If someone told me Nigerians will trend in 2019, I will call the person enemy of progress! Why can’t federal government redeploy these trigger happy SARS officers constituting nuisance down south to Zamfara state to curb killings and kidnapping? 🤔
