Nigerians have expressed outrage at the killing of one Miss Stella Ifeoma Abugu in Abuja by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS).
Details of the ugly incident are now available as her family is seeking justice in court. According to a statement issued by her family’s lawyer, SARS went to the residence of the fiancé of Stella Ifeoma Abugu to arrest him on some yet to be known offense. Her fiancé, Afam Ugwunwa, was not at home when they came so they arrested her.
The family later found out that their daughter was no more and her corpse has been deposited at the Gwagwalada Specialist hospital. Sadly, Stella Ifeoma Abugu is a serving corps member with the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC).
Her family is alleging that apart from being brutalized by the officers, they sexually assaulted her before she was murdered. Also, they were on illegal duty when they carried out the gruesome act.
The case of Stella Ifeoma Abugu is now one among many Nigerians who have been killed by security agents that ought to have protected them. Her case is even more pathetic because she is a serving corps member.
Her family was informed of her demise on the 15th of September, 2020 and things have not been the same for them.
