#ENDSARS: LAGOS PANEL AWARDS N10M TO KOLADE JOHNSON’S FAMILY

The family of Kolade Johnson, who was killed on March 31, 2019, while attending an English Premiership match between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United, has been awarded N10 million by a Lagos judicial panel. Johnson was shot during a raid by police officers in the Onipetesi area of Lagos, while he was watching the match.

A social media outcry erupted following the incident, which prompted authorities to identify the officers involved as Inspector Ogunyemi Olalekan of the Lagos Police Department and Sergeant Godwin Orji of Lagos State Police Department.
