#RevolutionwNow: “How DSS, Policemen shaved my head with bottle”

RevolutionNow protesters have spoken of the brutality melted on them by the DSS and Police officers during a peaceful demonstration in Abuja on Wednesday

A protester whose identity wasn’t given told reporters that his hair was shaved off with a knife and broken bottle.

The victim also told reporters that the DSS operatives asked him to kneel down, thereafter one of them pulled out a knife while another used a broken bottle to cut off his dreadlocks and shaved his hair.

The young man said the security agents harassed him for wearing brown hair since he was not a woman.


Another protester with bruises on his back, Damilare Adenola, said he was dehumanised and assaulted by operatives for participating in the protest.

According to him, he was flogged with iron and chain and kicked for no reason.

He said: “I was beaten by more than four Soldiers and Policemen. They slapped me several times and kicked me with boots. They also collected my phone and did not return it to me.

“It is unfortunate that this Government does not accommodate civic space. There is no freedom of speech in Nigeria again,” he said
