The family of late Kolade Johnson has been awarded N10 million by a Lagos judicial panel.
Johnson was shot by police during a raid in Lagos’ Onipetesi neighborhood on March 31, 2019, while watching an English Premier League match between Tottenham and Manchester United.
The incident sparked outrage on social media, after which the police authorities identified Ogunyemi Olalekan, a police inspector, and Godwin Orji, a sergeant, as the officers involved in the shooting.
Following an orderly trial, Olalekan was dismissed from the force after he was found guilty, while Orji was acquitted.
Doris Okuwobi, chairman of the Lagos panel, announced the compensation at the sitting on Friday.
The award sum was received by the mother of the deceased.
Thirteen petitioners — including Johnson’s family — were compensated with a total of N83 million at the sitting on Friday.
