The family of a 17-year-old boy simply identified as Sadiq has called on the general public to help demand Justice for their son who was allegedly shot by operatives of the Special Anti Robbery Squad on Monday in Abuja

The incident which happened on Monday in Abuja happened when the SARS were chasing some suspected kidnappers.

A source said the SARS officials scaled the fence of her aunt’s house and opened fire on occupants, SaharaReporters said.

She explained that Sadiq, was performing his ablution when the incident occurred. He was fired in the arm as he tried to run upon sighting the gun-wielding officers whom he took for armed robbers, she added

She said, “One of the officers shot him in the hand. Sadiq was bleeding. He handcuffed Sadiq and one of the neighbour’s son and took them into their vehicle.

“Meanwhile, the remaining officers broke the doors into the house, brought out the remaining boys and her husband and started beating them up.”

The source said she was later informed that the boys were being detained at the SARS office in Guzape where the officers claimed that they were trailing a kidnapper who had demanded for ransom money.

The lady added, “After we narrated our own side of the story, the officer realised there were some hidden facts. After clearly listening to his step mum, a senior officer asked them to release everybody.

“After going back and forth, I insisted they give us Sadiq for treatment and seeing it’s a gunshot injury and none of the hospitals will accept us without a police officer attached to us. I demanded that one of the police officers should accompany us to the hospital.

“They took Sadiq into their Hilux vehicle and drove him to National Hospital and left. The doctors told them to wait behind and submit their statement but they refused and left us there. When the bandage on Sadiq’s hand was removed, it was a gunshot injury.”

The bullet was said to have damaged Sadiq’s radius and ulna bones as well as the tendons on his wrist.

At the time of this report, the police has not released any statement or comments in respect to the incident.
