Nigerian Police Torture, Deny Access To Medical Care For Arrested Protesters In Abuja

Reports reaching us now indicate that members of the Islamic Movement arrested during the Free Zakzaky procession in Abuja and who are being detained in Special Anti-robbery Squad (SARS) headquters are dying in SARS custody due to lack of access to medical attention.

Many of them were additionally shot before arrest but have been denied medical treatment for the gunshot injuries.

Already, consequent on this development, not fewer that four have died in custody since their arrest. To further worsen matters, the police refused to separate the living from the corpses.

In another development, the police has tortured a member of the Islamic Movement who was arrested earlier today by pouring boiling water over him. He was later dumped by the police by the roadside.

The police has unsuccessfully tried to break our resolve.
