About a month ago, men of the Nigerian Police Force killed a 20-year-old girl in Lagos and shot another boy fatally.

According to rapper Ruggedman who made the report on Twitter, the incident happened in the Ajegunle area of Lagos and the act was allegedly perpetuated by the officers of the Trinity Police Station Ajegunle.

He went on to call for police officers to be arrested and sentenced to death for the  extra-judicial killings of the girl and her male friend.
