This is Kolade Johnson.
He was 36. SARS officials killed him while trying to arrest another person because of dreadlocks.

Kolade did nothing wrong.
He was watching a football match.

SARS kills people because we keep quiet. It’s Kolade today, who is next tomorrow? #EndSARS now.18611:57 AM – Apr 1, 2019340 people are talking about thisTwitter Ads info and privacy

I’m deeply saddened to learn about the killing of Kolade Johnson by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS). This is unacceptable. SARS have proven time and time again that they are too trigger-happy. If the IGP can’t fix SARS, he should disband them. #EndSARS33811:47 AM – Apr 1, 2019Twitter Ads info and privacy302 people are talking about this
