We had a distress call that we should move to Mangoro. On getting there, we saw some group of guys smoking Indian hemp and thought they were cultists. We effected an arrest there. Suddenly, they mobbed us. While trying to run away from them, I fired up and I didn’t know how it got to meet the boy in question that was shot dead. I only fired one shot up”
Johnson was shot dead on Sunday by a police officer while he was watching a televised football match in Mangoro area of Lagos.
