On the 23rd of April 2024, two brothers tragically lost their lives at a Nigerian policeman’s hand called Saheed SARS who is notoriously known among “Yahoo Boys” in Ibadan.

Iyanda Damilola was an Ibadan corps member who visited the Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Ogbomosho, Oyo State, to witness the convocation ceremony of his brother, Femi.

After, both went to a lounge nearby to celebrate. They were there when they heard the noise of people fighting outside where they sat, prompting them to go investigate the source of the noice.

Shortly after, some policemen came and in a bid to clear the crowd that had gathered, started shooting directly at the crowd of onlookers.

Policeman Saheed shot Damilola in the head and Femi sustained fatal bullet wounds which he died from days later.

Students of LAUTECH have demanded a probe into this murder, stating the prolonged police brutality they allegedly suffer.

Saheed has been previously accused of steadily assaulting the students and had in fact bought a white Mercedes Benz off the shady proceedings.

Currently, the case has become a national clamour for justice for the deceased brothers by well-meaning Nigerians. They demand that the SARS policeman be brought to book.

The family of the late Damilola and Femi are devastated by their deaths and have demanded that their son’s death be avenged as the investigation continues.
