Only Child Allegedly Killed By SARS Buried Amidst Tears

The single son of a single mother who was shot dead by members of the special anti-theft brigade in Kaduna State was buried today.



Richard Gora, 21, was a level 200 architecture student at Kaduna State University and lived with his grandfather in Gonin-Gora, Kaduna South. .

SARS agents alleged that the phone that Gora bought from someone was used to send threatening messages. It was gathered that the agents traced the phone to Gora and stormed his residence on Sunday morning. .

They took him to their office on Independence Way, Kaduna, and tortured him. The mother of the deceased, after hearing about his arrest, was reported to have traveled from Kano State to the SARS office that evening. .

Upon her arrival, she met Gora unconscious and requested that he be released on bail so that she could take him to the hospital for treatment, but his arguments fell on deaf ears and Richard died later.

According to Mr. Punchng, Kaduna State Police Public Affairs Officer Mr. Mukhtar Aliyu stated that Gora had been arrested for stealing and sending threatening messages, adding that he was complaining of illness then that he wanted to write a statement.

Aliyu, who denied the allegation of torture, said the 21-year-old man was taken to hospital where he died.
