Mother of 20-year-old Ada Ifeanyi who was recently shot dead by Policemen in Ajegunle, Lagos, on Saturday April 13th, demands justice.
Mrs Mercy John, in an interview with Punch, couldn’t hold back her tears, said she still saw her daughter last week and she promised to celebrate the coming Easter with her. She wondered what her quiet and obedient daughter, could have done to warrant such a brutal attack from the police. The grieving mum said:
“I spoke with her on Friday afternoon and she promised to come see me next week so we could celebrate Easter together. She’s a daughter I don’t want to miss in life. She had a loving heart, she was friendly and didn’t like trouble. When they called me around 7am that my daughter had been shot by the Police, I rushed down there and saw my child lying dead. A girl of just 20 years died like a chicken! What did they find on her that made them fire her? If they had shot the tyre, at least the car would stop. Is that what the government want for us? I want justice for my child! I wish she could live again for me, but it’s impossible! She’s gone forever!” the bereaved mother wailed as she broke down in tears.
Ada was coming back with Emmanuel (her boyfriend) from a Night club, on Saturday morning when SARS officers accosted them. Worried that they could be kidnappers as because they were not on uniforms, Emmanuel who was driving refused to stop. The policemen trailed them to Ada’s home where they shot at them as soon as Emmanuel parked his car.
Five policemen have been arrested over the incident while one of them has been declared wanted.
