#EndSARS : Mother Demands N50m Over The Death Of Her Son By Stray Bullet
Breaking news as mother demands N50m compensation from the Edo State Judicial Panel of Inquiry for victims of SARS and related abuses after 11-year-old schoolboy, Master Osasu Omoigui who was hit by police stray bullet in his genitals during the #EndSARS protest.
Tribune Online reports that the 61-year-old petty trader made the demands on Monday while appearing before the panel in Benin, Edo State.
According to Stella, Osasu, a primary three pupil of Maria Christian Academy, was hit by a stray bullet from the policemen deployed to disperse the rioters along Sapele Road, Benin City, when he sent on an errand to deliver a ripe plantain to his father across the road.

She said her son was later treated and discharged from the University of Benin Teaching Hospital (UBTH), lamenting that she had spent her little resources on treatment.
She wailed that Osasu who is presently out of school can only pass out urine through a fixed pipe on his abdomen, a situation that has forced him to always tie wrappers instead of wearing trousers.
She, however, pleaded with the panel to grant her son the sum of N50 million as compensation for the pains and also take care of his medical bills so that he can have his life back on track.
