Alhaji Remi Lukman has insisted that his son Kolade Johnson was not killed by a stray bullet but by the deliberate act of SARS officers in Lagos on Sunday March 31st.
This goes contrary to media reports which say the young man was killed by a stray bullet while watching an English Premier League match between Liverpool and Tottenham.
According to Lukman, stray bullets couldn’t have penetrated his body twice. Hr also claimed that his family has video evidence to prove that Kolade Johnson and his friends were aimed at by the policemen who stormed the football viewing center where they were watching a footbal match.
“We have been hearing that it was a stray bullet but I must tell you that a stray but cannot penetrate twice. If he had not directed the gun at them two bullets will not touch him. He was the hope of the family and a gentle boy and as I am talking to you, I have gone beyond this level and I’m just trying to set everything in motion to prove it was not stray bullets at all.” he said
Describing how the incident happened, the foster father said
“He was just there at that spot catching fun with his friends and watching football match, which of course anybody could have done. It was a response to a lady screaming kidnappers that made them all leave the Kingston Jo eatery to come out to know why the lady was shouting kidnappers.”
He described Kolade as the hope of the family, a gentle boy who was very intelligent.
“You really needed to have known him. He was a very gentle boy. Some of the video clips will carry in summary the kind of person that he was. While the gunshots were fired towards the group the video clip shows that he was walking behind them all. He wasn’t intrusive at all. It was just unfortunate that he happened to be a victim in the group.
All we are asking for is justice and what these people have done to us should be done to them. He was gentle, intelligent, full of future, the family had a bright hope concerning him and it is very unfortunate that someone like him died at a very tender age. He’s a very gentle boy, listened to home training and we trained him well.”
