Kamsi Ibeh, an #EndSARS protester has narrated the sad story how she was stabbed and beaten mercilessly for having the guts to appear and tell her story before Lagos State Judicial Panel on Restitution for Victims of SARS Related Abuses and Other Matters.
Ibeh, who was one of the protesters who witnessed the carnage unleashed on young persons protesting against police brutality at the Lekki Tollgate had shared her story before the Lagos panel.
She had appeared before the panel as a witness and agitated for justice for victims of the massacre that happened on October 20, 2020.
Narrating her near-death encounter on Sunday evening, Ibeh said she thought she would die from the attack.
According to her, she was attacked by some unknown armed men while returning from work.
“Last night, I was attacked on my way back from TNS by three guys whom I thought were passersby,” Ibeh said in the video.
“We were standing at the bus-stop waiting for a vehicle, only one of them to shed light on my face. One said, this girl from panel, shebi an una sabi pass, una no wan step back abi?“
She said the assailants wanted to kill her for agitating for justice for victims of the Lekki massacre.
“They said if they killed me, they would see how I would continue to agitate for justice. So, I told them I don’t know what they’re talking about. They started hitting me,” she said.
“See my back, see my leg. They started cutting me like I am a thief. I survived by the grace of God because I thought I would die at that bus stop.”
In a 309-page report submitted to Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Governor of Lagos, the panel admitted that soldiers shot blank and live ammunition at armless protesters with the intention to kill and maim them.
