Kolade Johnson, the Nigerian man who was murdered by SARS operatives, has been buried amidst tears in Lagos.
Many youths gathered to mourn at the burial of late Kolade Johnson who was shot in Lagos by an Inspector of Police, Ogunyemi Olalekan on Sunday, March 31st, 2019 near a viewing center where he had gone to watch a football match, AIT reports.
 
Thirty-six-year-old Kolade Johnson was buried at the Atan cemetery, Yaba on Thursday amid tears, as family members, friends, and passers-by called on the government to expedite action and ensure that justice prevails.
 
They also called for the immediate reform of the Nigerian Police Force to stop the menace of police brutality in the country.



At about eleven in the morning, the casket containing Kolade Johnson’s corpse arrived at the Atan cemetery, Yaba accompanied by a long convoy of family members, friends, and sympathizers.
 
Kolade’s body was then taken by his friends to the tomb where he will be buried.
 
In a short sermon, the officiating minister admonished the youths to stay away from vices capable of destroying their lives, saying they should all endeavor to live a life worthy of emulation.



While Kolade Johnson was lowered into the grave, his junior brother, Dipo Johnson was then called upon to perform the dust to dust rites.
 
Kolade’s aunt and others who spoke described the late Kolade Johnson as a gentleman to the core and called for prompt justice.
 
On how justice would come, Wale Ademoyejo who is the family solicitor expressed confidence that Kolade’s case would not be swept under the carpet.



Late Kolade Johnson is one out of many Nigerians who have suffered police brutality, but how soon government and the police leadership would put a stop to such innocent killings of Nigerians remains to be seen.
