According to the unnamed young man, he had gone out to purchase some ingredients when he saw some military men approach him.

They asked him what he was doing outside but before he could answer he claimed they started beating him.

“I was in the market buying some items for some stew when I saw some military men approach me… they asked me what I’m doing outside without me saying a word they started beating me up,” he narrated.
