Mercy John, the mother of 20-year-old Ada Ifeanyi who was shot dead by Police men in Ajegunle over the weekend, has cried out for justice.
Ada and her boyfriend were shot on their way from a night club by policemen. Her boyfriend Emmanuel who was driving the car refused to stop because they mistook the policemen for kidnappers for not wearing uniforms.
Speaking to pressmen, Mrs Mercy John, revealed how saddened she is that she won’t see her daughter again despite her promising that they will see each other this Easter.
“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 mother lamented.
Meanwhile, five policemen have been arrested in connection to the shooting.
