Operation MESA Soldiers Allegedly Shoot Teenager and Tricycle Operator in Lagos Clash

The tragic incident has caused outrage among residents of the community and beyond, who have called for a thorough investigation and justice for Pelumi and Aloma. Many have taken to social media to express their condolences and demand accountability for the actions of the soldiers and political thugs involved.

The incident also highlights the danger of involving the military in civilian matters, especially when political interests are at play. The use of soldiers to carry out reprisals or settle political scores is illegal and unacceptable, and it undermines the credibility and professionalism of the armed forces.

In response to the incident, the Lagos State government has condemned the use of violence in politics and called for restraint and dialogue to resolve conflicts. The state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, has promised to work with security agencies to ensure that the perpetrators of the heinous act are brought to justice.

Meanwhile, civil society groups and human rights organizations have called for an independent investigation into the incident, as well as reforms in the security sector to prevent similar occurrences in the future. They have also urged the government to provide compensation and support to the families of the victims.

The tragic death of Pelumi Sulaimon and Aloma is a stark reminder of the high human cost of political violence and the need for peaceful and democratic processes in governance. It is also a call to action for all stakeholders to work towards a society where the rule of law, respect for human rights, and the sanctity of human life are upheld and protected.
