Kolade Johnson’s Dad shares the story of how his son was shot dead by Police

The police officer who pulled the trigger on 36-year-old Kolade Johnson on Sunday, March 31, 2019, boasted beforehand that he was going to “kill somebody here today”, according to Alhaji Remi Lukman, his Dad.


As the police raided the Onipetesi, Mangoro Bus Stop neighborhood in search of one Ismail Folorunsho on March 31, 2019, Johnson was among the crowd who repeatedly assured the officers of Folorunsho’s innocence.


The police officers then shot sporadically to disperse the crowd. One bullet caught Johnson. He would not recover, even after he was rushed to a nearby hospital.

“My son was murdered here at about 4:30pm by so called anti-cultism unit of the police force. I want it to be relayed, to be passed over to people just as it happened”, Lukman said in an interview he granted Punch.


What I really need are two things: One is immediate. The other is procedural.
“The immediate one is a police report to enable the mortuary collect the corpse. The second, procedurally, is justice over the death of the boy. I want those responsible to be fished out. To be brought to book. To serve as a deterrent to committing such act. These youths are the future leaders of Nigeria…..”


Lukman said the policeman who pulled the trigger was a bloodthirsty, trigger-happy one.

“The act was carried out willfully after the policeman said he was going to kill somebody here today. And he actually killed somebody. That was the statement from the mouth of the man that fired the shot. He thereafter shot in the air and two stray bullets were directed at the crowd”, he said.

Lukman said Nigeria needs “a more organised police force. A police force that will dutifully handle their jobs, that has the interest of the people at heart”.







A healthcare system in shambles

One eyewitness has narrated that Johnson could perhaps have been saved if Nigeria’s healthcare was anywhere near decent.

“When we brought him here (General Hospital), there was no Doctor on duty. Only a Nurse who touched him lightly and went back inside. When Johnson died, we took him to the morgue. Imagine that when we got to the morgue, we were asked to rent a stretcher because we were told we couldn’t just lay the corpse on the floor. Inside a federal government hospital!! We paid for stretcher, we paid for everything! Every gaddem thing!” the eyewitness said.

The Nigerian Presidency has sent a condolence message across to the bereaved.

Arrest of suspects

The police command says it has arrested the officers responsible for Johnson’s death. The alleged perpetrators are members of the Special Anti Cultism Squad (SACS).


In a Tweet, the police said: “The men suspected to have carried out the shooting of Kolade Johnson have been apprehended and subjected to internal disciplinary procedures. The CP (Commissioner of Police) has revealed their names as (1) Insp Ogunyemi Olalekan and (2) Sgt Godwin Orji attached to Anti Cultism Squad”.
Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Zubairu Muazu, has paid a condolence visit to the family of the late Kolade Johnson.

Muazu reassured the family that justice will be done.


While receiving the police boss, Alhaji Lukman was quoted to have said: “I thought it is going to be one man’s fight, but seeing the police high command joining our family in this fight has shown that justice will not only be done to Kolade but to the entire Nigerian youths.”
Unending cases of Police Brutality

Police brutality and killings are commonplace in Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation, where young men are randomly stopped and harassed on the streets by police officers, on suspicion of being internet fraudsters.

An intense 3-year social media campaign calling for the reform of notorious police unit—Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS)–has only resulted in lukewarm action from the presidency.





Maurizio Sarri hits back at Chelsea fans calling for his head

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri responded to fans who chanted for his resignation in Sunday’s lacklustre 2-1 victory over Cardiff City.

Some Blues fans sang “We want Sarri out” and “you don’t know what you’re doing” at the Italian after the Bluebirds took the lead through Victor Camarasa one minute into the second half.

The visitors ended up snatching all three points, however, with late goals from Cesar Azpilicueta and Ruben Loftus-Cheek sealing the win for the West London club.


Speaking to BBC Sport after the game, Sarri stated that he is “getting used” to hearing such chants from his club’s supporters.

“I don’t want to answer, but I can understand the reaction of the fans,” the manager said. “But it was probably best for them to wait until the end of the match.

“I am getting used to this and for me, it’s not a big problem. I just have to work to change their opinion. If I win matches, then the fans will be happy.

“We were lucky with the first goal. But I think we deserved to win and, sometimes during a season, you need to win matches like this.”

Azpilicueta has also given his reaction to Sunday’s result, insisting that his side must “keep working hard” until the end of the season.

Yaya Toure accuses football authorities of failing black players in racism fight

Yaya Toure has accused football’s governing bodies of failing black players in the fight against racism.
In the wake of Raheem Sterling’s move to call out the authorities, Toure – who sat on FIFA’s anti-racism Taskforce until three years ago – insisted it did nothing until a crisis arrived.

The ex-Manchester City star, who famously demanded UEFA action after bring abused in 2013, said: “They sit and they have their coffee, their wine.

“Then they hear a case like Raheem happening and they jump on the phone saying: ‘We have to have a meeting! We have to do something!’


“It shouldn’t work that way. We have to be proactive. Something that is seen. We have to be working before that kind of situation with Raheem is happening.”

Toure was speaking as he received an award for his campaigning from the anti-discrimination body Fare (Football Against Racism in Europe).

Although Sterling had been playing in a UEFA competition when he started for England in Montenegro last week, Toure believes the whole of football must share the blame for failing to protect black players.
In 2016 he warned FIFA that it’s decision to disband the Taskforce on which he’d served for three years would see fans and players suffer.

Yet Fifa secretary general Fatma Samba Diouf Samoura insisted it had “had a specific mandate, which it has fully fulfilled”.

Toure, himself racially abused by CSKA Moscow fans in October 2013, added: “Now, maybe because of what is happening I would probably get the job.
“They’ll probably ask me to come and do this or that. But I’ve been there for how many years. I’ve been there. People only start to see it when something happens.”





After spending 2 years in detention, DSS reportedly arrests Jones Abiri again

DSS operatives have reportedly arrested journalist, Jones Abiri, again

  • Abiri’s whereabouts are still unknown and the DSS has not yet released a statement on the matter

  • The DSS first arrested Abiri in 2016, after he was accused of being the leader of the joint revolutionary council of a separatist group

Operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS) have reportedly arrested Jones Abiri, the editor and publisher of the Weekly Source newspaper based in Yenagoa, the Bayelsa State capital, again.

According to The Guardian, the journalist was re-arrested while having a meeting with his colleagues on Saturday, March 30 at Ayabowei Plaza in Yenagoa.


Legit.ng gathers that Abiri’s whereabouts are still unknown and the DSS has not yet released a statement on the matter.

The Africa program coordinator for the Committee to Protect Journalists, Angela Qunital, stated: “Given that Jones Abiri was previously detained by intelligence officers without access to a lawyer or his family for two years, we are deeply worried that he has once again been arrested and that his whereabouts are not known.

“We call on federal and state authorities in Nigeria to disclose where Abiri is being detained and the reasons for his arrest, and urge that they ensure that his rights are not violated yet again and that due process is respected.”

The DSS first arrested Abiri in 2016, after he was accused of being the leader of the joint revolutionary council of the separatist group, Joint Niger Delta Liberation Force.


The journalist was also accused of demanding money from and threatening oil companies.

After being detained for two years, Abiri was finally granted bail in August 2018 when an Abuja magistrate court struck out the suit against him.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that after being granted bail following his previous detention by the DSS, Jones Abiri explained the circumstances that resulted in his arrest and how he was linked to a militant group in the Niger-Delta.
Abiri said he was arrested by the security operatives because they found a phone they had been tracking, in his office.





Nigerians react as bride uses bulldozer as part of her convoy on wedding day (video)

In the bid to stand out and be unique on one’s big day, a lot of brides are beginning to think outside the box and going for unconventional and in this case, jaw-dropping choices as regards how they want their big day to be remembered.

Earlier on, Legit.ng reported the news of how a couple in Akwa Ibom state left jaws hanging after they decided to ride in a tipper truck to their wedding ceremony. Seeing the bride and groom make love happen right at the rear of a commercial truck got the attention of many.

In a similar story, yet another couple has left social media users wondering what is in the air that is probably influencing these weird choices. In the video currently trending on social media, a bride made the odd choice of using a bulldozer as her preferred choice to convey her to her wedding ceremony.

Sitting gracefully in the jaws of the construction machine, she waved majestically as onlookers stood by in shock and awe at the same time. What was even more interesting was the choice of vehicles in her convoy. Expensive fleet of cars followed her bulldozer behind, making it obvious her choice wasn’t for lack of a more fancier means of conveyance.


The video which has since gone viral, gather quite a number of reactions from Twitter users; most of whom thought it was a crazy and hilarious idea.


Still on unconventional wedding themes, Nigerian couple, Taofik and his woman who in preparation for their wedding, released their pre-wedding photos and its theme has a lot of people talking on social media. The couple who wanted to reflect their deep love for All Progressives Congress (APC), posed in APC coloured outfits and campaign posters for their pre-wedding shoot and everyone can agree that it is really unconventional.
