Some members of the Nigerian police force officer were caught on camera shooting at protesting Abia State Polytechnic students.
It is learnt that the students were protesting against the police force over the alleged rape of a female student by three members of the Special Rapid Response (SRS), after whisking the lady from a lodge located in Immaculate Street, Aba.
It was reported that the SRS operatives took the lady alongside others to an undisclosed location and gang raped one of the female students. At the time of this report, the victim is now receiving medical attention at an unidentified hospital in Aba, Abia State.
Following the incident, students stormed the famous Abia/Owerre road, forming barricades and altering the free flow of movement.
In a bid to stop the students from protesting and blocking the roads, the Nigerian Police Force began an open fire on the students.
