It was gathered that the young boy wasn’t armed, neither did he attack any police officer or destroy any property of the police, but the trigger-happy police officer shot him on the leg.
In video circulating on the social media, the young boy could be seen sitting on the road seriously injured and bleeding profusely.

KanyiDaily had repoted that there is an ongoing three days #EndSARS protest across the country against the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) of the Nigerian Police Force over brutality, illegal arrest, extortion, extra-judicial killings, among others.
On Thursday night, after the second day of the protest, the protesters had pitched their tent in front of the Lagos State Government house in Alausa as they met the absence of the governor.
However, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Hakeem Odumosu, reportedly ordered his men to dislodged the #EndSARS protesters by seizing their camping chairs and canopies.
Some of the protesters later raised an alarm that the police were harassing and planning to kill them before daybreak on Friday.
