On September 19, 2016, around Lasu-Igando Road, Mr. Eidonojie-Ugbeni’s late son, Joseph, an undergraduate of a polytechnic in Edo State who had come to Lagos to pay his cousin a visit, and had stepped out with his host was killed by stray bullet fired sporadically by operatives of Special Anti-robbery Squad, SARS, who were chasing a suspected internet fraudster.

Subsequently the policeman who pulled the trigger was identified as Sergeant Collins Idom. After he was court-martialed and found guilty, he was dismissed.

On Monday Sergeant Idom was arraigned before an Ebute Meta Chief Magistrate’s Court, the same day the victim was buried at the Atan Cemetery, Yaba.

During the burial, Mr. Patrick Eidonojie-Ugbeni sought justice from the authority and expressed his gratitude to the commissioner of police.

“The Lagos Commissioner of Police gave me N500,000 for the burial of my son and for that, I am grateful. The Officer-
in-Charge of SARS also gave us some money. But we need speedy judgement. They should not cover up the case, because that will only increase our hurt,” the bereaved father said.
