#EndSARS: Lagos panel awards N10m to family of man shot during football match

The Lagos judicial panel has awarded the sum of N10 million to the family of Kolade Johnson, one of the many victims of police extrajudicial killing.

Johnson was shot dead during a raid by police officers at Onipetesi area in Lagos, while watching an English premiership match between Tottenham and Manchester United on March 31, 2019.

The Lagos State Police Command later identified the trigger-happy officers as Ogunyemi Olalekan, a police inspector, and Godwin Orji, a sergeant.

Following an orderly trial, Olalekan was dismissed from the force after he was found guilty, while Orji was acquitted.

His family had written a petition demanding justice shortly after the ENDSARS judicial panel was constituted by the Lagos state government.

And at the resumed hearing of the panel Friday, the chairman of the panel, Justice Doris Okuwobi, announced the award of N10 million compensation to the family.

The award sum was received by the mother of the deceased.
