Popular singer, Wizkid, has said he will do all he can to get justice for a fan that was killed by Nigerian police officers.
His fan, Babatunde Ramon Adeniji, was murdered by a police sergeant, Lukman Akanbi on Friday, December 27, 2019, as he returned from Wizkid’s concert around 4.am.
According to reports, the police officer assaulted and killed him.
Reacting, Wiz tweeted, “I won’t stop till we get justice”.
“Nigerian police! Protect us! Not kill us! I’m so so sorry guys. I’m so broken right now.”
Recall that the Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Bala Elkana, reacted via a statement recently.
It read, “The Commissioner of Police Lagos State, Hakeem Odumosu, has ordered the arrest of Sergeant Lukmon Akanbi, F/No 448407, attached to the Victoria Island Police Station over the shooting of one Ramon Adeniyi, 39, of campus area Lagos Island. The incident happened on Friday, December 27, 2019, around 4.20am around Eko Atlantic, Victoria Island, Lagos.
“There was a fracas between the Police Officer who was on patrol at the area and the victim who was returning from an event. The Police Officer was said to have pulled the trigger of his pistol on the unarmed civilian, which falls short of professional standards on the use of firearms.
“The victim was rushed to the Naval Dockyard Hospital and was confirmed dead by the doctor on duty. The Police Sergeant was arrested and detained at the Provost Department, Command Headquarters, Ikeja. He was subjected to internal disciplinary proceedings known as Orderly Room Trials.”
