An official of the Department of State Services (DSS) was shot by policemen from Zuba Division in the Federal Capital Territory FCT, during a raid at Dakwa community, an Abuja suburb.

The DSS official was on transit when he was shot during the 8pm raid in which 37 residents and other passersby in the community were arrested.

Aliyu Ibrahim, who introduced himself as a resident of the community and a security guard in one of the private schools in the area, told Daily Trust that he was one of the people arrested and taken to the police division where they spent the night.

He said other people arrested included traders, tea and roasted meat sellers as well as commercial motorcyclists.

Aliyu said;

“They stormed the area with three vehicles, including a Hilux van, bus and a utility vehicle. They operated alongside local vigilantes who rode the impounded motorcycles, while their owners and other arrested people were conveyed in the police vehicles.”

Another resident told the publication that the arrested residents were released the following morning after parting with N5,000 each.

Zuba Divisional Police Officer (DPO), CSP Osor Moses confirmed the shooting of the DSS official but said he was responding to treatment at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital in Gwagwalada.
