Woman Hit By Police Stray Bullet Demands Compensation


Ahair stylist, Mrs Hannah Olubode, who said she was hit by stray bullets fired by operatives of the disbanded Special Anti-Roberry Squad (SARS) demanded for compensation.

In her evidence in chief before the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry investigating police brutality in Lagos Sunday, Mrs Olubode said the incident happened on June 6, 2018.

She said she was climbing down the stairs when the stray bullet hit her on her left leg, adding that she fainted before she was revived and rushed to LUTH for medical attention.

According to her, SARS operatives who usually come to the area to extort money from one man identified as Abu, were responsible for sporadic gun shots that hit her.

Mrs Olubode said she underwent multiple surgeries which cost her much money.

She therefore prayed the Panel to compel the police authorities to pay her compensations.
