#EndSARS panel witness escapes death for testifying

 

Kamsi Ochuko narrowly escaped death in the hands of hoodlums who attacked her with machete for testifying at the Lagos #EndSARS panel

The witness testified before the Lagos State Judicial Panel of Inquiry on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and other matters and told how she was attacked by unknown men at Crown Estate bus stop, Sangotedo, in Lagos on Sunday, November 21.

Adesina Ogunlana, counsel to EndSARS protesters, had reported that Kamsi was attacked by unknown persons, leaving her with a deep cut on her hand she also said she narrowly escaped being killed by the hoodlums.

“This is me Kamsi. Last night, I was attacked by three guys 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.”
