One of the witnesses who testified before the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and other matters, Kamsi Ochuko, has narrated how she was attacked by unknown men at Crown Estate bus stop, Sangotedo, in Lagos on Sunday, November 21.
WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that a member of the panel, Ebun-Olu Adegboruwa (SAN), had said that hoodlums attacked and macheted Kamsiyochukwu Ibe, who testified before the panel on the alleged role of the military and the police in the Lekki shooting of October 20, 2021.
In a video making the rounds on social media, Kamsi said she narrowly escaped being killed by the hoodlums.
“This is me Kamsi. Last night, I was attacked by three guys (men) whom I thought were passers-by. I was standing at the bus stop waiting for a vehicle. Only for one of them to point a torchlight at my face, before pouncing on me with dangerous objects. They said my crime was because I testified before the panel.
They said if they kill me, there would be no way for me to continue agitating for justice. I told them that I don’t know what they were talking about.
They started hitting me. See all my body, back, leg, hand badly injured. They cut me like I am a thief. I survived by the grace of God because I almost died at that bus stop.”
