The hashtag #EndSARS has begun to trend as Nigerians react to the killing of a young man by a stray bullet from SARS operatives in Lagos.
The young man identified as Kolade Johnson had reportedly been watching a football match when he was hit by the stray bullet. He was an only child who had just become a father and was in the country to visit his family.
According to reports, the sad incident happened Sunday afternoon at Olu Aboderin Street, Onipetesi, Lagos State.
According to one Emenike, who witnessed the incident, the officers had come to the area to arrest a guy on dreadlocks.
He alleged that they started shooting sporadically after the arrest, only for one of the bullets to hit the boy.
The victim was subsequently rushed to the general hospital in Ikeja, where he was confirmed dead.
