Reports say the incident happened on Monday at a drinking joint around College of Health Technology, Dorowa Zawan, near Bukuru in the Jos South.

Further reports have it that the victims included a carpenter, Dung Chung, 42, who was shot on his right arm; a builder, Dung Chollom, shot on the head, and another victim simply identified as Junior.

“The shooting by SARS took place on Monday night. Members of SARS don’t want to give us details about what happened. Many people were shot and three of the victims were driven in a Hilux van to an unknown destination,” a youth leader Dapip Stanley told Northern City News on Tuesday.

“We have intimated the youths in the locality and we are marching to the SARS office to ask about our people and ascertain the state of their health. They were drinking at an Ogogoro (gin) shop when the SARS swooped on them and started shooting.

“They have been intimidating, harassing and molesting our people and we have been keeping quiet. But this time around, they are going to receive the bad side of it from us.”

Speaking on the incident, spokesperson for the Plateau State Police Command, told Punch the people were injured during exchange of gunfire with security operatives.
