In reaction to the death of a football fan in Nigeria, Kolade Johnson, Nigerians have sought out to the government to #EndSARS. The football fan was shot by policemen from the Anti-Cultism Unit (SARS), of Lagos State Command.
Reports has it that Kolade’s death happened as a result of a commercial bus visiting Mangoro/Onipetesi community in Lagos, on Sunday in search of youths who are dressed wildly and rocking dreadlocks.
In an attempt to disperse a gathered crowd, one of the police operatives shot Johnson dead while he was trying to leave the scene after watching the English Premier League match between Liverpool and Tottenham.
Apparently displeased with the development, Nigerians took to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to express their grievances with Johnson’s death and in the process called for the immediate disbandment o the unit.
