Commiserating with the family, the Commissioner of Police condemned the killing of Kolade by members of the Anti Cultism team, reiterating his commitment to ensuring that justice was done in the matter.
He told the family that suspected killers have been arrested and subjected to internal disciplinary procedures. He revealed their names as Insp Ogunyemi Olalekan and Sgt Godwin Orji attached to Anti Cultism Squad.
Muazu prayed for the repose of the soul of Kolade Johnson and also prayed that the Almighty God will grant the family, friends and well wishers the fortitude to bear the irreparable loss.
In his response, the head of Kolade Johnson’s family expressed gratitude to the CP for honoring the family with his presence and his resolve to ensure that justice prevailed in the case. He commended the CP for the bold steps taken in exposing those behind the shootings.
I thought it is going to be a one man’s fight but seeing the Police high Command joining our family in this fight has shown that Justice will not only be done to Kolade but to the entire Nigerian youths. I am glad that we have a new police force which believes in Justice,” he said, describing his late son as a peace loving person and called on well wishers to remain calm and allow the law to take its cause.
