Veteran Nigerian singer, Daddy Showkey, has cursed policemen who chased and shot dead 20-year-old, Ada Ifeanyi, in Olodi-Apapa area of Lagos State.
The outspoken humanitarian said the disturbing rate of police brutality has become unbearable and went ahead to lambaste politicians, lawmakers and key personnel in Nigeria.
Daddy Showkey, a prominent personality in Ajagunle said the police officers will not have rest of mind adding that “the blood of the innocent people you people have been killing your families will not have rest of mind”.
Recall that an eyewitness, who was at Akpiri street in Ajegunle area of Lagos state on the day of the incident said when police officers shot dead 20-year-old Ada Ifeanyi, has said the Police officers acted like they were hired to kill the girl and her boyfriend, Emmanuel.
The man identified as Festus Williams said he was in front of his house around 6 am on Saturday when he saw the car driving into Akpiri street and the policemen giving it a hot chase with a motorcycle.
Williams added that the policemen drove off from the scene immediately after shooting the girl, while the guy drove himself to the hospital.

“You people will not have rest of mind, The blood of the innocent people you people have been killing your family will not have rest of mind.
“A boy identified as Emmanuel aka AJ main boy, is currently battling for his life, while his girlfriend, Jessica Ada, is dead, following their encounter with some SARS operatives while returning from a club on Saturday, April 14, 2019, in Lagos.
“The lovers and a friend had gone to Club J5 in Olodi Apapa, on Friday, and were returning around 6:30a.m on Saturday, when they were accosted by some SARS operatives who were on a bike.
“Since there was no way to identify the officers, Emmanuel refused to stop for them and continued on his trip to drop Jessica at home, however, on getting to their destination, the officers showed up and opened fire on them.
“Jessica was shot twice in the belly and once on the lap, while her boyfriend was shot at the back of his head, but their friend was unhurt. The officers were later identified by some eyewitnesses and the DPO of Trinity Police Station confirmed that they have been transferred to the headquarters in Ikeja for interrogation.
In an accompanying post, Dady Showkey urged Ajegunle residents to fish out the police officers at also cost.
