I was moved to tears when I learnt about the story of miss Mosurat Ojuade, a 18-year-old girl who was shot dead by a trigger happy police officer in front of her home. It hurts because, this is not the first time young ones are dying in the hands of trigger happy police officers in this country.
On the 10th of September, 2021, police officers mistakenly shot and killed a young girl while they were reportedly pursuing a group of suspected robbers in Ijesha, Surulere, Lagos State. The victim of this incident, Mosurat Ojuade was an 18 years old girl. According to reports gathered, she was a recent secondary school graduate and is currently processing admission into the tertiary institution.
