Must Read: How I was Brutalised By Nigeria Police Force

A Nigerian woman identified as Chioma Pius has demanded for justice after being beaten mercilessly by police officers for having tattoos on her body.

According to her, she could not record the brutal incident because the officers seized her phones.
The woman said she was assaulted along Emohua axis at the highway leading to Bayelsa.

Narrating her ordeal, the young lady on her Facebook wall @ChiomaPius wrote: “Today was a horrible day.

I experienced the worst day in my life. Today I was brutalized by police officers. This happened at emohua axis of river state. At the highway leading to bayelsa. My crime was that I tattooed my body. In this modern age.

A police officer asked me to step down from the taxi I was traveling with from bayelsa to portharcourt. I asked to know why and he asked again so I got out of the car and then he asked to know who I was and what I did.

“I gladly introduced myself after which i had a big smile on my face and my phone rang but I couldn’t answer and then he said I should I identify myself to his superior which i found funny and I was just looking at the guy when he said I should get detained. That I don’t have manners and that am a cultist, prostitute, armrobber, there is no disgusting name this men didn’t call me and all this time I was just laughing and telling them am not entering their mobile cell. They seized my phones so I couldn’t record them.

“They searched my purse And when they couldn’t find any money they got more angry And said that I don’t even have money And am showing myself And before I know if one of the officers grabbed me by my trousers and pushed me to the van and the other guy slapped me and punched me repeatedly. I was asking why they are beating me up and their boss used his gun to hit me on my thighs, went away came back with cane And was flogging me And calling me names. And pushed me into their cell. During the struggle I lost my ring and while this was happening they were collecting money from highway drivers and letting them through without searching them.

” These guys are animals, they touched the wrong one and will not go unpunished. They sent away my taxi driver. Passerbys were watching but couldn’t do anything.

“I will not be humiliated for no reason. This police officers are not here to protect us but only to hurt innocent ones but its enough what’s wrong with one tattooing their body.

Please share and repost.”
