Adesua Etomi reacts to murder of Kolade Johnson by SARS Operatives in Lagos

Nollywood actress, Adesua Etomi has reacted to SARS operatives killing a young man, identified as Kolade Johnson, yesterday in Lagos.

Kolade Johnson, an only child who recently became a father and was in Nigeria on a visit, is the recent victim of trigger happy officers in Nigeria.

Tragedy struck, yesterday, on Olu Aboderin Street, Onipetesi, Lagos State, as one of the bullets unleashed by the SARS operatives struck him watching a LiverpoolFC match.


According to one Emenike, who witnessed the incident, the officers had come to the area to arrest a guy on dreadlocks.

He alleged that they started shooting sporadically after the arrest, only for one of the bullets to hit Kolawole.

The victim was subsequently rushed to the general hospital in Ikeja, where he was confirmed dead, living behind a son, a widowed mom and wife.

 

Nigerians have been protesting on Twitter with the #EndSars hashtag, and now actress Adesua has added her voice.

She shared the above photo of Kolade and wrote;

“I am SO SICK of the abuse of power by SARS.
I am SO SICK of a government that turns deaf ears to the cries of it’s people.
HOW MANY MORE PEOPLE HAVE TO DIE before something is done about this nonsense?
Every other day, we hear stories of how citizens are beaten, killed, robbed, kidnapped by SARS.
If a tree is producing rotten fruit, CUT IT DOWN.
This is Kolade. His only crime was watching football. That was all he was doing when a stray bullet hit him yesterday. A bullet fired by a SARS official. They fled the scene btw. So who do we hold responsible?
He has a son who now has to grow up without a father, all because some idiot was trigger happy.
P.s I didn’t know Kolade. This could have been anyone.
#EndSars #justiceforkola #thishastostop”
