Awosanya, in a reaction to the sad incident, also tweeted: “Our Citizens will no longer be cut down by the impunity at home or abroad if only we value ourselves enough to raise the bar on our political literacy.

The deceased who was a student at the United States International University, Nairobi, Kenya, died after he was allegedly assaulted by some Kenyan policemen.
He was reportedly brutalised on Sunday at his house in Four Ways Estate, Kiambu County, in Central Kenya.
It was learnt that the policemen tried to extort him despite finding out he had valid papers. He however stood his ground, insisting that he had committed no crime.
The police then resorted to assaulting him until he started gasping for breath.
On realising that he was nearing his death, the policemen reportedly rushed him to a hospital where he died yesterday.
