The lawmaker representing Iseyin/Itesiwaju/Kajola/Iwajowa in the green chamber, Hon. Shina Peller has vowed to fight to see that justice is served in the gruesome killing of Mr. Jimoh Isiaq by a yet-to-be identified policeman during #ENDSARS protest in Ogbomoso on Saturday.
The federal lawmaker made his position known in a series of tweets via his verified Twitter account @shinapeller.
Shina Peller while commiserating with the bereaved family, said the death of Jimoh Isiaq should trigger a more constructive and robust engagement with Nigerians who are expressing their displeasure with the police.
Read the tweets:
This rascality has to stop NOW! Another peaceful protester Jimoh Isiaq killed by a policeman during the Ogbomosho #EndSarsProtest. This is so painful and hits me differently. The demand is clear #EndSarsnot to reform the unit.
The death of Jimoh Isiaq should trigger a more constructive and robust engagement with Nigerians who are expressing their displeasure with the police.
Lautech is my alma mater, I am not pleased with what’s happening in Ogbomosho at the moment. However, I enjoin everyone to maintain law and order to prevent further escalations.
I am not resting on my oars.
I will speak to the issues on the floor of the House of Representatives. Beyond that, a series of consultation is being done to find a lasting solution to police brutality.
My heartfelt condolence to the family of #JimohIsiaq. We will fight to see that justice is served. And the will of the people prevails.
