President Muhammadu Buhari on Monday expressed sadness over the death of one Kolade Johnson.
Kolade was alleged to have been shot by a member of a police team, while he was watching a Premier League fixture between Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur in Lagos on Sunday.
Johnson’s death has since sparked widespread criticisms, with a renewed call on the Federal Government to end the Federal Special Anti-Robbery Squad (F-SARS) unit of the police.
Speaking on the development, Buhari on his verified Twitter handle wrote: “Deepest condolences to the family and friends of Kolade Johnson, victim of the March 31 fatal shooting in Lagos.
“Police have assured that the Team suspected of involvement in the shooting have been apprehended and are undergoing disciplinary procedure. Updates will be provided.”
However, Nigerians responding to Buhari’s message urged the President to put an end to police brutality of Nigerians by eradicating SARS.
