With deep sorrowful damaged coronary heart I write dis painful story of what occurred to my cousin right now. Today as a Nigerian citizen, I’ve seen the very best order of abuse of workplace by the SARS officers and cruelty.
At about 1pm SARS officers jumped the fence and entered my aunt’s home in gwarinpa abuja, and began capturing, Sadiq was performing ablution for zuhr prayers.
On sighting one of many officers capturing, he received scared and he thought they had been armed robbers. Out of concern, he jumped in to their neighbour’s home. One of the officers shot him on the hand, Sadiq was bleeding. He handcuffed Sadiq and one of many neighbour’s son and took them in to their automobile. Meanwhile, the remaining officers broke the doorways in to the home, introduced out the remaining boys and her Husband and began beating them up and took them away and after some minutes, a number of the officers got here again to the home and packed the bullets that had been on the ground in an try to cover proof.

On reaching there, they took us to see one of many heads of the workplace. He narrated the story that the officers had been chasing a kidnapper demanding a ransome and the kidnapper jumped into my aunt’s home and that they didnt shoot any physique, that Sadiq received injured by a barb wire whereas making an attempt to flee and that Sadiq is the kidnapper.
