A promising young Nigerian man has reportedly lost his life after he was allegedly shot by SARS officers for smoking marijuana.
Operatives of the Special Anti Robbery Squad (SARS), have been accused of killing a young man for smoking marijuana.
The accusation was laid by a Facebook user, KY Larry who lives in Port-Harcourt, Rivers state capital.
Larry reported that suspected SARS operatives allegedly killed the young man during an altercation after he was caught smoking weed in public. It was gathered that the SARS officers first shot the young man on his hand as he was about to run with the wounded hand till he got tired and fell.
The young man after falling reportedly begged for forgiveness but rather, he was shot at again leading to his instant death.
KY Larry took to Facebook and wrote: “Just came back from school to see this. Sars shot this man right in my street for smoking weed.. They killed him instantly particles of his brain were in the pool of blood I saw the floor.. He was shot on the hand at first.. He ran with the bullet wound till he got tired and fell. They came right after him and gave him a head shot..
While he begged for forgiveness.. How would he be killed mercilessly for just smoking weed… Police work is not for illiterates.. Please government should adjust this problem. Our Nigerian sars are bunch of miserable, untrained, illiterate, dirty, jobless and heartless people..
They’re the law breakers.
We need to do something about this country I’m getting scared everyday.”
