Men identified as members of the special anti-robbery squad (SARS) of the Nigeria police force have shot dead a man in Ilupeju area of Lagos state.
A witness told TheCable that incident happened on Ajisegiri street in Ilupeju in Odiolowo Ojuwoye local council development area of Lagos.
The victim was simply identified as Francis, while residents said he had gone about his daily job of cleaning when he was killed.
“The guy was in the area to sweep the compounds of his customers,” a witness told TheCable.
“The Ajisegiri area is notorious because of these boys who come there to smoke, and the area has always been raided by police. But this morning none of the boys was there, just this man going about his business. He was shot and he died almost immediately.”
