Kolade Johnson: Police Begins Orderly-room Trial Of Killer Cops
The Lagos State Police Command has commenced the orderly-room trial of two of its personnel involved in the killing of a football fan, Kolade Johnson, in the Onipetesi area of the state.
The command revealed the identities of the affected personnel as Inspector Ogunyemi Olalekan and Sergeant Godwin Orji of the Special Anti-Cultism Squad.
According to Punch, the orderly-room trial commenced on Tuesday at the command’s headquarters.
Recall that some SACS operatives had on Sunday stormed Olu Aboderin Street, Onipetesi, while the victim was watching a live English Premiership League football match between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur at an eatery.
The operatives were said to have arrested a man, identified simply as Ismail, who was said to be seeing off his girlfriend to the bus stop, but residents protested against the arrest.
One of the operatives allegedly fired some shots in the air to disperse the crowd, but a bullet hit Kolade where he stood and before he could be rushed to the hospital, he gave up the ghost.
