A yet-to-be identified man is fighting for his life after he was reportedly shot at by Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) officers in his home. The young man who is currently in pains due to the bullet lodged in his leg stated that his building was more or less attacked by the officers.
While expressing disappointment in an institution that is designed to help keep citizens safe, he revealed that he was at home when the SARS operatives stormed his home and started shooting sporadically and two of the bullets hit him but one got blocked by his iPhone 8.
The second bullet hit his leg which landed him at the hospital. According to the injured man, he was visited at the hospital by the officers who tried bribing him into silence. He stated that they pleaded with him to not release their identity or share the information with anyone.
Reports state that the SARS operatives stormed the house after they got a tip-off that a man in the building has guns.
Meanwhile, the Nigeria Police Force has been lambasted over extra-judicial killing in Nigeria. According to the National Human Rights Commission, the police lie about sanctioning officers guilty of extra-judicial killings in most cases.
The human rights group said extra-judicial killings by officers of the SARS is frightening and efforts to get the police accountable for these killings have failed.
