A woman has cried out for help after accusing SARS officers of killing her brother then dumping his body in a morgue without informing his family.
Martha Yellowe took to Facebook to share her story and ask for justice for her late brother. According to her, her youngest brother Solomon Yellowe, in April went missing after he left his school Uniport to withdraw money from an ATM in March.
The entire family kept on searching for him but found no trace until they found out that he was allegedly arrested on March 13 by men of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, a unit of the Nigerian Police Force.
She went on to say that they finally discovered their brother was dead more than a month after he was found. His body was discovered in the mortuary on the 26th of April.
Her Facebook post is to get justice as she calls on well-meaning Nigerians to help
Tough times indeed for my entire family but in all His grace and mercies are keeping us strong.
My younger brother Solomon Yellowe, the last born of the family, left Uniport campus after a test to withdraw money from a bank’s atm on the 13th of March. Not long after he was arrested by SARS. By 14th of March my brothers lifeless body was deposited at UPTH mortuary by the same SARS that arrested him. They never contacted us despite knowing that we were looking for him. We went to their station several times and they continuously denied ever arresting any Solomon Yellowe. It was on the 26th of April that we finally discovered my brother’s body at the mortuary.
He was healthy at the time of his arrest and was taken to SARS, Rukpokwu where he was subsequently murdered the next day. He was tortured to death…
My brother had never been arrested before nor does he have any record of criminal activity. We have also not received any information of a complaint against him.
Yet he was killed by police without any regard to his family.
Pls I want to urge every one on this platform, in anyway you can to assist us to get justice for my brother, Solomon, whose life was cut short for no apparent reason.
