The governor-elect of Lagos State, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has joined Nigerians in condemnation of the killing of a football fan, one Kolade Johnson by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, SARS in the state.

Kolade 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 at the weekend.

His death has since 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.

Recall that the Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bala Elkana, in a statement yesterday, had said that suspects have been arrested and investigation begun into the matter.

Reacting to the development in a tweet on Monday, Sanwo-Olu said, “My sincere condolence to the family of Kolade Johnson.

“I commend @PoliceNG for their swift action but this is a very unfortunate incident that should never have happened.

“The lives of citizens must be protected at all costs and everything should come into play to ensure that.”
