DSS Operative Allegedly Shoots Tailor, One Other In Abuja

Muhammed Abubakar, Reporting

OPERATIVE of the Department of State Service has allegedly shot at a man in a market in the Garki 2 area of Abuja.

A woman was said to have invited a DSS operative to accost a tailor she had given clothes to work on, after having delayed the job for some time.

To avoid being manhandled by the DSS operative, the tailor ran away but he was shot in the leg allegedly by a DSS operative, while a bullet also hit a girl nearby.

As a result, the other tailors in the market descended on the shooter and beat him up.

They also burnt the police outpost in the market after the police officers there came to the reinforce the DSS operative.

The police thereafter reinforced and returned to the market, firing teargas to disperse the angry tailors.

Meanwhile, the FCT police command, in a statement, explained that normalcy has been restored to the area and weapons recovered.

What's your reaction?
