President Buhari, in a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Wednesday, acknowledged the genuine outrage regarding the activities of SARS.

The president reassured the public that swift actions had already been taken as the suspects were in custody.

He said that an orderly room trial was set to commence immediately, following which indicted officers would be prosecuted in court.

Buhari, who commiserated deeply with the family of the deceased, said: “Government will not tolerate, in any way, the brutalization of Nigerians or the violation of their rights.

“Any officer of the law enforcement agencies or any other government functionary caught in this act will certainly be visited with the full weight of the law,” the president said.

He recalled that the Presidency, in 2018 directed overhaul of the management and activities of the SARS, the president said steps were taken by the Police leadership to restructure and reform the squad.

Buhari however, observed that a lot more remained to be done and sustained.

The president pledged his administration’s resolve to ensure that the Police and other law enforcement agencies conducted their operations in strict adherence to the rule of law and with due regard to International Human Rights and Humanitarian Laws.

Johnson had on March 31, gone to watch a football match when he was hit by stray bullet from policemen attached to the Police Anti-Cultism Unit.

The Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Zubairu Muazu, had already revealed the names of policemen involved in the killing of Kolade Johnson at Mangoro area of the state.

Muazu, who made the revelation when he paid a condolence visit to the deceased’s family, identified the officers as: Insp. Ogunyemi Olalekan and Sgt. Godwin Orji attached to Anti Cultism Squad. (NAN)

.

I think that this message/lesson goes to ALL government security agencies who sometimes get carried away thinking that they can do whatever they like and get away with it.

THE FINAL TRUTH IS THAT YOU WILL BE ALONE AND FACE PUNISHMENT ALONE.
Even your oga will deny you because he will not die for you.

When shit hits the fan, whoever did the killing will face death according to the law of the land.
These officers will face death penalty eventually because that is what the law says.

There was a time in Nigerian when police officers HARDLY fired their guns. And even when shooting at armed robbers, they shot them on the hands or legs. These days, they always shoot to kill.
But now, these officers will first be removed from the force, face the law, and of course HANG for their crime.
In these days of information explosion, there is no hiding place for ANY murderer no matter where he is.
Enuff said.

President should back his talk with action, military officers are guilty of this as well. Any slight provocation by who they call "bloody civilian" they start to brutally punish such people, although we hardly hear of military officers shooting innocent civilians, but some that occurs are buried or swept under the carpet. Few years ago there was a case of people going for burial and they missed road and went to a military reserved area where the GOC reside, they were beaten black and blue, may God help us.
