The Nigerian police have reacted to the now viral video of a security officer who was caught on camera shooting an unarmed young civilian in Benin, Edo State.

Earlier we did a report on a video which shows the moment two armed police officers were seen dragging an unarmed young man through the street, before firing at him at close range. The man fell down on the floor and appeared to have died instantly. (Read the report HERE)

In reaction, the Nigerian police through its Public Complaint Rapid Response Unit (PCRRU) blamed a “sister security agency.”

The statement reads:

“It has been established that the armed men in the viral video are not officers of the @PoliceNG but operatives of a sister security agency.”

“All the men rounded up in the video are members of a violent kidnap for ransom syndicate who were tracked down to the said location.”

Though the police did not mention the “sister security agency” involved in the killing, several Twitter users said the police was referring to the State Security Services (SSS).

However, the SSS through its spokesperson, Peter Afunanya, denied the involvement of its officers in the killing. Afunanya said:

“Well, I haven’t seen such video, but it is not DSS. It couldn’t have been, we don’t operate like that.”

“DSS operates within the law, we are not rascally.”
