Wizkid reacts to killing of his fan by police, Demands Justice
Ayodeji Balogun, Wizkid, award-winning Nigerian singer, has vowed to get justice in the case involving one of his fans, who was killed by Lukmon Akanbi, a policeman, at Starboy Fest.
The fan, identified as Ramon Babatunde, was shot dead on Thursday night by the sergeant while returning from the concert at Eko Atlantic Victoria Island, Lagos, according to Bala Elkana, spokesman of the Lagos state police command.
The 39-year-old deceased was said to be departing the event venue when a heated argument broke out between him and the police officer.
Seemingly rankled by the development, Akanbi had pulled the trigger and Babatunde would later be confirmed dead at Naval Dockyard Hospital.
The incident led to the dismissal of the police officer, while he was also handed over to state criminal investigation department (CID), Yaba for prosecution.
Apparently shocked by the development, Wizkid took to his social media page to condemn the killing of his fan, vowing to ensure justice is done in the case.
“I won’t stop till we get justice,” the music superstar wrote on Twitter.
