“They put me in their vehicle, five armed men, screaming and shouting at me, hitting me with their gun. Stole my gold leg chain. They had the nerve to ask me why I’m crying?
“They followed me from the protest ground, they had people there, amongst us #EndSARS trying to identify who they think people were coming to for solutions, or someone everyone knew.
“I can imagine how many people they actually picked up and no one knows about till today. I have become paranoid and suspicious of everyone around me. Such a nightmare. This isn’t a country
“And to top it all “I AM POOR” I’ve joked around with this sentence lately with my friends but it’s not funny. Imagine not being able to access the money you worked for Woman shrugging who does that? Should I be begging to feed?”
