At first we tried to reason with them then when they became too aggressive we let them have the brutal beatdown they were begging for#SWATMUSTEND pic.twitter.com/n7Bh1UQYr1— Hymar David (@PaganBaby_____) October 14, 2020
The entrance to the State House of Assembly, Alausa where the crisis erupted was thrown into chaos as angry youths descended on people suspected to have stolen some phones.
A group of youths were seen beating and hitting one of the victims with sticks as he laid down as if he was unconscious.
The victim was rescued by some officials of the Rapid Response Squad, RRS, as he was almost being beating to death.
