Veteran Nigerian actress, Omotola Jalade, recently took to her official Instagram handle to share her horrible and heart wrenching experience with the Nigerian police.
This is coming after the actress came out and joined the protesters at the Lekki toll gate, Lagos.
Omotola Jalade explained that ten years ago, policemen pointed guns at her during a protest at Abuja. She thought she would die but she still challenged and confronted them.
Read her story below;
“10 years After and we are still fighting. I remember when we took the fight to Abuja during the #EiE protest. They pointed guns at us and I remember for a second, my life flashed before my eyes. But! … instead of Fear, I got mad. Some Anger I didn’t even know existed took over me, I charged at towards them and their guns and shouted! Do you know we fight for you? Do we fight for your children and children’s children unborn?! One of the military close to tears then said “I’m sorry, I don’t have a choice. 10 years After, that Anger is still there but today, I hope we all have a choice to say … F it! Enough! #endpolicebrutality #ReformNigeria #TiredofbeingTired”.
