They said the incident left four persons injured while the deceased was killed.
The Shiite group said that Ahmad who was shot on the forehead by men of the security forces. He was rushed to the hospital but later died while receiving medical attention.
Calling on the Human Rights Commission to take actions, the spokesperson said:
“We have been reporting a lot of these atrocities committed by the government we now decided to come along with the corpse of this our brother so that the human right commission will see it.“We will open the corpse they will inspect it, they will see where the police shot him on his fore head that is why we are here because on several occasions, they open fire on us at Area 2, they killed Aminu Ibrahim Gasua, and Adamu saliu, they opened fire on us on 9th of January at Wuse Zone 6, killing one person, but we couldn’t bring the corpse because we believed the Human Right Commission will believe in what we say, but we have not seen any proper action taken by the Commission. I don’t know if the commission maybe will explain.“We have not seen concrete action that is why this time around we say we are not just coming but we have to come along with the corpse.”
