“In the last few days, we’ve all witnessed as the city of Sagamu in Ogun State has been unsettled by an orgy of violence resulting from the extrajudicial killing of a young footballer by officers of the Nigerian Police.

“This is not an isolated incident. We’re daily inundated with news reports of interactions between citizens and the police resulting in the injury and death of those citizens,” he said.
