One young woman claimed at a protest on Thursday that she’s joining the call to end SARS and its replacement SWAT because she’s been a victim and won’t wait for her children to go what she went through.
Chiatuiro Precious Chidera alleged she was raped by SARS two years ago after which they still extorted money from her, IgbereTV reports.
She wrote on Twitter:
“Hi Twitter,this is a secret I kept with me for years. I would always be strong but we must #EndSARS and #EndSWAT .
I was upset,I have to vent.
I am the lady in the picture.
I am Chiatuiro Precious Chidera.”
In a video she posted on Twitter, she said she will not bring her daughter into a world where she could be raped by officers who should protect her, neither will she bring sons into a country where they can be easily killed. For these reason, she says she will continue to protest.
Holding a placard at the End SARS protest, she said: “I was raped by this motherf**kers last two years.
“They extorted money from me too.
“What was my crime: I fresh. I fresh na crime?
“I cannot give birth to a daughter in this country make them no go rape my daughter tomorrow.
“Make them no go shoot my son tomorrow.
“Na people pikin them they dead for Lagos state. End SARS. End police brutality.”
Twitter users sent her messages of hope and she said she has “lived past it”.
