Stephany George, lover of Kolade Johnson who was shot dead on Sunday by policemen from the anti-cultism unit of Lagos State Police Command, has reacted to the killing.
Johnson was shot by policemen on Sunday when the officers raided Olu Aboderin Street, Onipetesi area of Lagos allegedly in search of youths dressed wildly and wearing dreadlocks.
He had attempted to resist the arrest of his friend who had just watched a live English Premiership League football match between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur when he was shot.
The victim was taken to Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), Ikeja, but was pronounced dead on arrival by doctors.
In a tweet in the early hours of Monday, Ms George wrote that she was sorry she was not there to stop the bleeding. She added that the government had failed Johnson and that she was sorry it ended the way it did.
She wrote: “My Kaylo Boy is gone! My ‘Lion’ … my chef… my precious Kolade Johnson… I’m so sorry it ended this way… I’m sorry i wasn’t there to stop the bleeding… I’m sorry the government failed you… I’m sorry 💔#EndSARS.”
