The Head of Police Complaint Response Unit (CRU), Abayomi Shogunle, confirmed this in a tweet on Monday.
It read: “CRU has registered the unfortunate death of Mr Kolade Johnson as a case of Excessive Use of Force, Tracking No. #[email protected] Lagos State is treating it as a homicide, CP Lagos will brief the public on this case today. May his soul RIP. ACP @YomiShogunle#JusticeforKolade.”
The victim was alleged to have been shot by a member of a police team, while he was watching a Premier League fixture between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur in Lagos on Sunday.
Johnson’s death has sparked widespread criticism, with a renewed call on the Federal Government to end the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS) unit of the police.Share this News
